When Jadon Woodard was arrested while performing on a subway platform, it set off a chain of events that ended in $55,000 worth of studio money. It's legal to play on the platform, but NYC's underground performers still face regular prosecution and illegal arrests are an ongoing obstacle to buskers. This time, the buskers fought back. Jadon and his bandmate Ghsts & Guitars filed suit with the help of activist group BuskNY, and found themselves at the center of NYC's ongoing battle for creative freedom.
