Hello,

I have some time to kill on Friday morning and was wondering if there is a busking scene.

Any help much appreciated,

Danny

There won't be much going on Friday morning. If there is anything, it will be on the Nicollet Mall going a block or two north or south of the IDS tower (you can't miss it). Most things won't pick up until after lunch and into the evening. Most street performing around here is just musicians. In the morning you'll probably only see the bible verse shouter and maybe the Penny a Poem guy. There a couple of good music acts including a really decent horn player and the violin lady. Sometimes there is a guy with his upright piano out there. Some of the performers hang out in the skyways. But you never know. The scene seems to change often.

Other than that, busker is mostly in the evening and mostly associated with events like professional sports games or festivals. It's really a hodgepodge around here as far as street goes. But here's a tip: a ton of acts have taken to performing at the cabarets and burlesque shows. It seems like there's a theater on just about every corner, and if you look at the schedules, you'll find tons of acts and stuff to do. True - not pure busking, but we've adapted to the cold up here and do a lot more performing indoors now.

Good luck. Enjoy your visit.

Thanks PizPor (love the name),

I'll have a wander in the evening as you suggest.

Best wishes.
