I am a musician from the U.P., and live about two hours north of Marquette. I don't know exactly how or where you would expect to busk up here, but you would be much better off scheduling shows to pay your way up. Local bands book stuff up here, in exchange for help with shows below the bridge. Busking is not practical here, and more likely to get you trouble with police or businesses than anything.
The canaries are a catastrophic area since yesterday, global warming ain't gonna pass tommorow, i'm scared of the fucking ocean in general, let alone fucking tsunamis and shit, and even if i'd stay off the beaches, the rains are so heavy that the trip seems pointless, someone kick me while i'm down
Fuck this shit, 3 months of preparing for a trip to the Canaries just went down the drain, my guitaritst bailed out of the idea to start a job and a "steady life", my bestie is getting all weird and i don't think she wants to go.
i was already preparing for going solo when suddenly life (fucking Shell and coal miners!!!) was all like "nooo of course you don't want to go"
