Now that the weather has turned and the people are flocking en masse for all the fine patios/ outdoor seating this city has to offer, I beg of thee, aspiring folk singer with acoustic guitar and/or harmonica in tow to please ply your trade elsewhere! When I am trying to enjoy a coldie or some grub whilst soaking up some golden rays of sweet, sweet sunshine the last thing I want to hear is you, of half assed musical talent, struggling through a cover of some song that nobody wants to hear or has heard a million times. It's bad enough you can barely play your chosen instrument but paired with your vocal abilities, which range from ' Eddie Vedder taking a crap ' to ' Bob Dylan with a bad cold ' make me get up and leave every time.
But... Don't fret, you acoustic troubadour! There is still a place where your musical stylings still inspire! Any open mic around town will warmly embrace you and guarantee a crowd of at least three that can genuinely 'pick up what you're laying down'. So go there. Be appreciated. And please, PLEASE stay out of/off/on or in our hallowed places of sun worship!
