Hey guys. Im going to the states around 25th of march and Im staying for around 3 weeks until 16th of april.
I am going to visit my sister in Minneapolis for 5 days, however the rest of the time I was hoping I could go busking!
The thing is; I do not have a clue where I should go!?
I did some shows in the streets of Norway last summer and a couple in Spain, other than that my experience comes from performing inside.
So this is really just going for it! What do I have to loose.

So any tips and advices at all and especially on where to go would be appreciated!
Also is it generally a good thing busking during the easter? How will these dates affect me?

I been tipped of that Boulder Colorado might be a good place to start out.
Also I wonder about Charleston, SC and Saint Petersburg, FL (where I got friends living)

Thanks for the help guys! Wish you all a Magical year.

Don't make me laugth... you are not a busker...

buskers don't ask if they could, and they don't ask about what they should do...

do what I told you, BOY... if you have time, go there, and busk where you see rich people... if you get trouble don't worry the worst thing that can hapen you is a cell in guantanamo... imagine the cops arrest you and sent you again to your conutry... that would be a great story, for the rest of your life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

See... them I can call you a busker because you have some interest, at least you have a story...

Dood, Boulder just got 18 inches of snow...
Better stick with the warm states and visit your friends in Florida
Then you can perhaps perform at the Clearwater Pier 60 & Key West
Meet you in Busker Alley Smile

Thanks Paddy. Even in April?

And Gia thanks for nothing, Negativity does not give me much.

Zoobini, that is some of what I been thinking, but in april would it be so bad then?
also heard about Key West, but thought that I would prefer not to go to the biggest pitches because of the big competition.

And Eduardo I have never claimed to be a "real" busker. However, Im young, eager and not to afraid to take a chance.
During my 60 shows this summer I got stolen from, threatened and experienced my city (Oslo) bombed by a madman.
And if busker generally never asks, I really wonder why forums like this exist. And also in generally buskers seems quite stupid if you ask me, but then again you might not ask, and at least not me.
Though I ask because I rather pick up some tips and ideas before I go instead of putting my finger at the map and choose a place at random.
Cheers man. Smile (Hope you get my sarcasm)

Im still open for any tips and advices!
It is quite a difference being in Norway compared to the states and I welcome all help.

The good thing for you in Minneapolis is there is a LARGE Norwegian community, so you could even use Norwegian language to draw the crowds, then slip into English because people may understand some Norsk but could not follow it in the patter.

Thanks Paddy, I will see. Any special places in Minneapolis you recommend?

I meant, if it is so that buskers never ask, then they are quite stupid.
(I can't se anything wrong in asking, however when it comes to just go for it I might agree. Easier to get forgiveness than to get permission)

Other then that, yea sure, I do part time comedy! Smile
And what do you know? do you understand Norwegian?
Chosen one he? Who knows Smile but chosen for what that is the question.

No, I don't speak Noregian myself, but as a kid I spent my summers in Minneapolis (with my Grandparents, my father was in the American military) and a lot of the adults spoke it so us kids wouldn't understand them. There are a lot of parks there that are good to work, also lake Harriet. I have seen some try to work the Niccolet Mall downtown. Break a leg!!

Victor Borge was Danish.

Weather in the north can be very unpredicable in March / April. Especially with current changes in weather patterns around the world. Florida is generally beautiful in March.

Ignore the pessimists and antagonists on here. Good luck.

And while we are talking about funny Danes I might add that Rune Klan is hilarious.

You might also keep in mind, Hans, that March is "spring break" month in Florida. College kids from all over the U.S. descend on Florida by the thousands. Whether you end up busking or not you would undoubtedly have a good time.

Thanks Epoptika.
Looks like I'm getting some local guy setting me up around tampa so think that is mainly what I will be going for.

Hans,
If you have the opportunity to visit Charleston also you should try to do so. A beautiful city.
