A pleasant late-summer Saturday in Washington Square was, in the view of — and to the ears of — more than a few parkgoers, marred by the presence of two drummers with their full drum kits last weekend. A few feet east of the park’s fountain, a drummer and his amplified guitarist played, above. While, on the west side of the fountain, acrobatic buskers performed to the funky beat of their drummer, right.
