Last week, Music Under New York — the MTA arm responsible for many subway performers — held their annual auditions. (I wrote more about MUNY last year.) The auditions were a rousing success, and now one lucky performer will hit the NPR airwaves, just not, ironically, in New York. The Bryant Park Project is holding a vote: Pick your favorite MUNY audition tape. The winner will get to play a set live on the airwaves on a show WNYC has opted not to carry in New York.

That is weird.
