Koz, when I was looking into performing in Old Sac, they told me that "to perform
in ol' Sac, you MUST dress in period attire." That's 19th century, baby!

So the propeller hat, the "kiss me I'm irish" button, and the rainbow striped socks won't cut it.

Howdy Ted, the info is on its way. The Frank is correct, you do have to dress like the 1880's, they provide a list of approved clothing along with photos. Shouldn't be too hard to comply. If there is anything else I can do for you just let me know.

Koz, I was trying to find out about San Diego as well. I grew up there and I am going back to visit the day after tomorrow. From 12:00 to 1:30 on Saturday at Seaport Village there are "live performances." Not sure exactly what they are. I have heard that Seaport Village requires auditions. I have also been told that Balboa park is known to have street performers. Eric Evans and Nowlin Craver in their book The Secret Art of Magic mentions Horton Plaza and the Gaslight District in downtown San Diego. It is not far from Seaport Village. I tried to find the exact reference in the book, but it escapes me right now. He does list San Diego as in the top ten places to busk in the the country.

I'll tell ya about Sacramento. First is you need to be licensed, very important. Second there is a solid pitch at Old Sacramento and they seem friendly to street performers, if properly licensed, and the weather is mild during the Summer. There is tourist trade throughout the year, don't know the tourist view of street performers, but it could be good. Lots of folks at night, no performers.


Does the license cost and is it expensive? (The license here in Providence is free, but you do have to make an appointment for it and I'm not certain how useful it is since it states that you are performing at the will of the local police and are not allowed to make "active solicitation for funds." Also, while it's not in the language of the license, the board made it clear to me that the good will of the local business I'm working in front of is also paramount. ie, If they ask me to move, I also have to move. The license won't protect me!

The license is free but there are some fees the county charges that are tax related in the city and county. I don't recall and sent the info already, Ted can answer. They to understand the conciept of street performing and other than not allowing 'hawking' (they seem to define it as yelling) they have reasonable restrictions in order to maintain the area for it's purpose, establishing an 1880's vibe.
