So I went and found a low-traffic but semi-isolated side path and played there for a while. Money wasn't very good (and I was told by another musician that this was generally true that day but it would improve over the weekend) but I did get people listening, and I even had some sing-along on the chorus of Outbirds, and it was pretty neat when that started happening. And on Popcorn - one of my flutes, not usually the star of this show - and to a lesser degree on Scar (another flute), I was able keep my space when Drum Kit Guy started performing across the way. I handed out a few cards, including one to this guy who was fascinated by Splinter, and who also buys flutes from Romy Benton, who is a much better flutemaker than me.
No performance today. Anna and Paul and I are going to head down there just to attend - I really want to see some of the AYP stuff in particular - and tomorrow I'll play again.
