Default Buskers sometimes even must pay to play

Well freelance busking is not always free. At a few venues I've had to pay to play. My thinking is they're getting top class free entertainment and should be happy. Their thinking is that if all the other sellers and people doing business have to pay to rent space so why should a musician be different. If I know the gig is worthwhile I pay. Occasionally even a busker must pay taxes.
