Street musicians Who, on mandolin, and Frog, washboard (pictured here playing with Scarecrow) think Salt Lake City is a little bit of all right:

“Finally it’s legal for us to exist,” said Dan “Who” Elliott. “Every town we go to we’re either getting chased out or we’re getting stopped (by police). We get in trouble just for walking down the street because we don’t fit the norm. [But on Main Street] we had a couple of cops ride by on their bikes and not even stop; they didn’t even slow down.

Adds Frog: “The cops definitely live lighter with the people, you know, not just automatically assuming they’re bad people, profiling. They need to be peace officers. We are not the enemy.
