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.
