    Why can't those hippies get a job?

      It's not illegal anywhere in the US.

    Has anybody here ever busked?  What was your experience like?  Did you do it before you could get paying gigs or while you still had paying gigs?

      I done busking in New Orleans. We had a few hours to kill before our gig and I just ran an extention cord from my hotel room (on Bourbon St) and a small amp and stage monitor. My lead singer and I did about an hour or two of songs. Fun! and we made a few bucks.

    I've done busking the day of a show with a bunch of flyers as a promo thing. If you're in a place where people have their wallets out (we do the farmers market more than anything else), and you have a really good show to put on, you can move a few CDs and start to see some decent money for an hour's work.

      Not aware of too many places where it's illegal although most places require you to get a license or something. Which is equally ridiculous imo and so therefore it may as well be illegal. Bureaucrats gots to make a buck too...
