My new favourite band

The Broken Bottle Band
Live @ Washington Square Park

Music Nation has an interesting little article on some NYC street musicians and how much they claim to pull in per hour or per day. Some of these dudes are making more than me playing in the tube! At least, they claim they are.

The stupid Naked Cowboy says he makes about $1,000 in a 10 hour day; which is about $400,000 a year! Soloists in the NY Philharmonic only pull in about $100,000 a year!
