iPad Street Musicians a New Trend?

Where there are tourists there are street musicians. Some are incredibly talented and belong on much bigger and quieter stages, while others rely on schticks to get tourists to throw spare change their way. This iPad-sitar playing hippie chick with a raccoon tail hanging between her legs is one musician that falls into the later category. I’m from San Francisco, so I’m no stranger to hippies busting out the sitar, but this video causes all kinds of confusion. Sitar typically indicates ‘Dots Not Feathers Indians’ as my wife puts it. This performer’s Raccoon tail however reminds me of Native American lore.

As much as I love technology, I prefer old-school street musicians with tarnished instruments and real talent.

Would you stop and give this girl a dollar?
