I've got a love-hate relationship with subway buskers. Mostly because when they're good, they're really good. But when they're bad, they're really, really atrociously bad. And when they're the worst, it's very difficult not to claw your way out of the train car or the station that has become your temporary prison.
Fortunately, this group that often performs in Union Square, Too Many Zooz, is just fantastic.
As Americans take the subway instead of driving their cars to work more and more, they're also going to have to get used to the concept of somebody playing music, often at and not for, them during their afternoon commute. This can either grow into a positive appreciation for the arts, or an absolute disdain for someone just making noise when you're trying to get home.
