'Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty..'

Played an evening set tonight close to home, in the heart of downtown Brooklyn, right by Junior's.

Usually there's a steel drummer who plays on the platform here during the day; not sure how he manages it, since it's a pretty narrow space between the up and down platforms. In the evening the trains are frequent and it's dusty and almost unbearably hot.

I played for about an hour and talked for a while with a very nice woman who told me she used to busk on the London subway with her boyfriend.

Made $2.50 tonight, making the running total for Robin Hood $81.06.

Tonight's songlist:

Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Bob Dylan
People Get Ready - Curtis Mayfield
Here Comes The Sun - Beatles
Lawyers Guns And Money - Warren Zevon
Peace Love And Understanding - Elvis Costello
The Rising - Bruce Springsteen
The Promised Land - Bruce Springsteen
Roxanne - Sting
Rosalita - Bruce Springsteen
Drift Away - Dobie Gray
All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan


The Guardian reports on the BBC radio premiere of Radiohead's new song, dedicated to Britain's last surviving First World War veteran Harry Patch, who died this week.
