We asked the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority to get the word out to buskers that we’d be shooting videos of their performances for a Battle of the Buskers. Folks who were interested were filmed and we selected the best videos to present here. Vote for your favorite in the sidebar to the right and you may win a $100 gift certificate from Cafe Campagne, in the Pike Place Market. One lucky voter’s name will be chosen at random when voting ends: June 30 Friday, July 8.
