It is art and it is fair: Violin Monster to play at Main and Liberty during Art Fair

Yesterday, Violin Monster was kicked out of the State Street Art Fair. Though other musicians pay money for permits to play during the Art Fair, it seems like a risky move for the State Street Art Fair to kick out our homegrown buskers. There was substantial disappointment on local blogs, reddit and the twitterverse. Fortunately things are looking up for Violin Monster. Not only has he recieved an outpouring of support from the community, The Summer Art Fair (the one on Main St. mostly) just posted on Violin Monster's Facebook that he'd be welcome to play at Main and Liberty during the Art Fair. Yay.


  1. Same crap happens at the so called "townie party". I was walking with my sculpture thru the townie party last year, not busking or begging for $$ and was asked to leave by some overly officious clipboard holder.

    Badges? And I was under the impression that public property was public. We should never need any stinking badges.

  2. I wonder if this is part of some some big inter-art fair conflict. Like the Guild's Street Art Fair is trying to score PR points against the State Street Art Fair, or something.
