[un]scene is a...heck, why don't I just post what they wrote? "[UN]SCENE² is a functional urban guide that celebrates the less mainstream, more innovative establishments in your urban area. Working directly with this dynamic website and music CD's, it enables people to navigate through the city's streets, seeking out the most interesting commercial and cultural hot spots. One in a series of urban guides, [UN]SCENE² promotes those who continue to push all that is unique in contemporary American culture." Not bad and useful, but could be better designed.
