Walk downtown’s Lower Broadway, into the songwriter’s heaven Bluebird Café, or even into a no-name pizza joint, and you’ll hear someone playing or singing—and usually pretty darn well. And maybe because those upstarts are always looking to make nice with a record-label rep who’s out and about, the locals rank No. 1 for being friendly too.
