I'm not sure what this guy's story is, nor how he lugs a piano downtown to play a little street music.
In fact, things have gotten more complicated for street musicians in our town. In addition to getting licensed, they need to be a certain distance from store entrances and from each other. And they can only be stationed in the same spot for about 2 hours (which seems kind of pointless since they just switch places). It's kind of sad, because these "characters" are a part of the culture of our town.
