Busker Ball 

When: Thu., Aug. 23, 7-9 p.m. 2012
Price: $8 (adults), $5 (kids)
What must a busker do to make you drop a dollar in that guitar case? Deliver an honest, heartfelt performance? Appeal to your guilty conscience? Freak you out with sustained eye contact? The performers working this year's Lawrence Busker Festival try out their varying approaches from 7 to 9 p.m. at a kickoff meet-and-greet at the Lawrence Arts Center (940 New Hampshire, 785-843-2787). An exclusive stage show precedes an informal gathering where partygoers can meet participants, such as comedian and sword swallower Thom Sellectomy, contortionist Jonathan Burns, and magician and escape artist Bobby Maverick. They and others perform Friday through Sunday in downtown Lawrence. Tickets to the Busker Ball cost $8 for adults and $5 for kids. Food, drinks and booze are part of the fest (sold separately).
