img_3532Nate Hill shares the peril of being a popular public performance artist: overly enthusiastic audiences. After last night’s human-powered bouncy ride routine, the Club Animals ringmaster writes by email:

SPECIAL SHOUT TO THE KIDS WHO TACKLED ME ON THE BOUNCY RIDE TIP TONIGHT AND I TACKLED BACK ON THE L PLATFORM AND WE COMPASSIONATELY ALL COLLAPSED ON MY FREE BOUNCY RIDE SIGN AND THE GLASS SHATTERED UNDER US. THEN A RAINBOW APPEARED.

Anyone else who can tolerate strangers and turn abuse into iridescence is encouraged to audition for the group of mascot-headed artists. Club Animals is holding tryouts for “a few good animals” tomorrow, then slinging Candy Crack through the night. Next Friday, they’ll be back giving free bouncy rides on the Union Square L platform.
