Have you seen these pianos popping up this weekend around State Street?
I stopped in Border's today to read up for an upcoming trip when I heard a high-energy reggae band playing outside. They were singing classics by Jack Johnson and Sublime with a funky rock-n-roll twist. Soon, they were a distraction to my Rick Steves' Madrid book (and that is pretty hard to do!).
Turns out, their name is Kounterfeit Change and they are part of a 3-day concert event put on by New Noise Santa Barbara (www.newnoisesb.com). The pianos around State Street are also part of New Noise SB which encourages anyone to take a break in their day and indulge their musicality. If I had my way, they would be around all year long!
Rock on, SB!
