DC vs. NYC Round 1: Street/Subway musicians

September 19, 2010 at 9:37 am (music, new york city, washington dc)

When we moved from SF to NYC, I had a few posts on my thoughts about how the two stacked up against each other.   Now that we’ve moved to DC, I figured it’s time to start those comparisons again.

I don’t think any city will have performers that match the ones in NYC.  Like this guy who looked like Roger Federer, played electric violin, and danced like Gene Kelly AND Michael Jackson.

But since moving to DC, I have enjoyed the guys who are always drumming on plastic bins in Chinatown.  Not a lot of variety, but I’m glad that I can count on them being there all the time.  And I did run into two guys who were playing trombones while walking down the street.    Sorry, there’s no photo.

The two guys playing trombones, even if I never see them again, bump DC considerably higher, but the Federer look-alike who played electric violin while dancing, plus all the other amazing musicians in NYC, can’t be beat.

NYC: 1

DC: 0
