“This is more than just a fun fight for your rights party, it’s a call to action to other musicians, the general public and members of the media to stand up, come together and demand justice for all. These are our rights, and if we fail to use them then we’re going to lose them.”
The 8th NYC Busker Ball is looking to be a good one. Art and politics. Who knew?
The lineup of NYC street musicians includes singer Grace Kalambay, Theo Eastwind, Bandits on the Run, and the Blue Vipers of Brooklyn.
Event organizer Theo Eastwind promises serious chat on what’s been going down with the increasingly aggressive (and legally ambiguous) police crackdown on street performers in NYC. Expect to hear stories of the controversial “broken windows policing” as it plays out on the ground, with real living human beings.
Go. Spend an evening with art and advocacy. Listen to cool tunes. Find out your rights as artists and as residents. Fight for them.
