I took my Tiki Flea ukulele out to Pike Place Market and did some solo busking today. I arrived prior to the day stall people's roll call time and wandered about a bit, coming back to the bridge spot in time to catch the 11:00 am set.
I played the set (for a measly 12 bucks) and then, because while I was playing a bunch of other buskers arrived and lined up, I waited around in the cold for 4 hours, finally playing my second set at 4 pm.
I about froze my fiddly bits off whilst waiting. I don't know the actual temperature, but with the breeze going it was cold. I did a lot of wandering about, visiting with the craftspeople and sales agents, just trying to stay warm.
To my utter surprise, the second set was (marginally) better than the first. I had waited all that time pretty sure that it was going to be a bust.
You never can tell.
