In other musical news today, have you ever seen this guy? He’s awesome.
He has a synthesiser on his violin or something that makes it sound sort of like an electric guitar. So it’s like a hard rock hairband with a fiddle.
Axl would be so proud.
Ok, we promise no more subway music for a while.
The New York Times has really stepped up its online video mojo. I haven’t looked at any of their vids in a long time, but today one caught my eye called “Subway Idol.”
It is a very well produced story or mini documentary about a musician auditioning for Music Under New York, a program that funds and supports subway musicians. Personally, I think it would have been in the MTA’s best interest to give SUBWAYblogger a shout about the auditions for a little publicity, but that’s just me.
The program itself has been around for a few years now and has grown to receive over 50 auditions, held in Grand Central Terminal.
Watch the video here. Very interesting if you are a subway music fan.
