Default I remember my first time in Harvard Square

I think I made $33 in two shows on my first night in the Square. I thought I had done a few "street shows" in other towns before I got to Harvard Square, but now that I look back, those other shows were more like "juggling on the sidewalk with a hat out for 20 minutes" type of shows. (More like a musician playing songs with an open case.) But those first Harvard Square shows felt more like "shows."

Don't stop now! It will get better. Keep a journal. Write down what works and what feels good.

Oh... and don't be afraid to rearrange your bits every time. I think I did a different show every night for a year before I really found the groove for my routine order.
