Probably sensing that Williamsburg could use a distraction from the whole Ebola thing... Colin Meloy has announced that he'll be busking on Bedford and North 7th Street today, around 11:30 a.m. Look for the guy in the beard singing Decemberists songs, and please send us video, as we are unable to leave our desks for this.
Hi NYers! I’ll be the bearded and bespectacled guy at Bedford & 7th, busking new Decemberists songs. 11:30. Like, in 40 min. Come on by!

Thank you, Colin Meloy. Please don't get arrested.
