This is going to be a mess…

This fall, 75 pianos will be installed in public locations across Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville available for anyone to play.
The “Street Pianos Boston: Play Me I’m Yours” public piano installation by British artist Luke Jerram will commemorate the 75th season of the Celebrity Series of Boston, which has brought orchestras, chamber ensembles, vocal, piano and jazz musicians, dance companies, and other performers to Boston concert halls since it was founded in 1938 by pianist and impresario Aaron Richmond.
The pianos will be hosted from Friday, Sept. 27 through Monday, Oct. 14, by dozens of local partners, including the City of Boston, the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Arts Academy, Office for the Arts at Harvard and the Prudential Center

I haven’t seen a civic invitation for anarchy like this since Bunny Colven opened up Hamsterdam in Season 3 of The Wire. Blatantly spitting in the faces of the Woodwind and Brass folks by green-lighting lowlife piano players to claim turf across the city. You think the the trombone guys are going to let some skinny hipster tickle the ivory on their corner? F’no! The only way this tragedy ends is with an Anchormen style showdown on the Kennedy Greenway…guys getting their teeth knocked out by old dudes with pony tails swinging soprano saxophones, Trumpet players raining spit-valve fury on everyone. Scary stuff.

  3. If hipsters get in slap fights over this shit people need to video tape it and send it our way so we can share it. Be sure to yell “FRANKY CABOT!!!!!” a few times to get the old pluggola in there.

  4. BTW, solid Bunny Colvin reference there. “WMD’s!!! Got them WMD’s!!!”
