At its very core, busking is a musical endeavor unsuited to a festival of any sort. How can you reign in and organize a performance style that thrives outside—literally—of the traditional musical settings? But tonight's Big Busk does a fine job of organizing, but not constraining, the various acts that will take to the streets of downtown Portland, instruments in hand and tip jars at the ready. Considering the sheer number of corporate dollars it takes to host any sort of musical festival, the second year of this totally independent event is worthy of your support. Plus the streets of Portland can be a scary place on a Saturday night—unless you look like you belong at the Dixie Tavern—so bring some spare change and support the artists of the Big Busk.
