Is it the Economy?

Have any other New Yorkers noticed a huge influx of new buskers into the subway lately? I see someone playing an instrument or singing on just about every platform, and no train ride this week has been without someone strolling through the car. The A train has a distinct set of musicians that I see frequently, but these guys are new, people I've never seen play before. This afternoon on the way home there were literally four different people who passed through. It seemed like they had their performances timed out so that they left one end of the car as someone was coming in the other end. I can usually tune it out, except when the Mariachi bands come through... they are just too loud. They also seem to be coming at more crowded times now. Seems like they used to come through only in the early evenings whenit was bit less crowded... maybe I am just imagining things.
