Add comment on:Drum Circle Hits the Road, Pursued by Police
The Wednesday Drum Circle spent three hours at their new Elm St. location--to which they were driven by Farmer's Market expansion and police harassment at Lincoln and Cedar. Reports from Robert "Blindbear" Facer Drum Circle Dave say 25-30 drummers moved to Scribner (Scope) Park next to the Town Clock. Police officers-including Officer Schonfield--then reportedly harassed and pursued the diminishing Drum Circle stalwarts on an "Indian walk" from spot to spot. The police cited anonymous complaints and ended up ticketing one or more drummers on the spurious charges though at no time did cops give the drummers the option to play more quietly as provided by MC 9.36.020.
