Oak Lawn

The busker

The street dancer's platform shoes.

The street performers in Oak Lawn vary — from real musicians and performers to people in the middle of drug-induced episodes.

We recently came across a fabulous Michael Jackson-like performer who reminded me of Disco Stu from South Beach

Disco Stu was this fabulous greasy-haired busker who was well-known on Lincoln Road. He had bedazzled platform shoes and an old boombox that blasted oldies. I saw him almost every weekend in college.

The Oak Lawn version of Disco Stu had more conservative outfit, but the shoes were right and he was just as fabulous.

Street performers aren’t consistently along Cedar Springs. I wonder if that’s because of the proliferation of karaoke / open mic venues, or because drunk Dallasites aren’t the best tippers.
