Mississippi Records Shuns Street Fair, Plays Dickish But Humorous Prank

At the Mississippi Street Fair yesterday.

After an initial groan of "Ohhhhh shit!," we determined this was a hoax put on by Mississippi Records, who decided to get the hell out of dodge for yesterday's street fair. They shuttered their storefront and played Kenny G from an outdoor speaker; they left a marker with a piece of string for folks to leave their thoughts. Judging by what people wrote, most people bought the joke.
