Scene in S.B.: Pianos on State

Time Again for Playing the Black and Whites in Downtown Santa Barbara


It’s that time of year again when the tinkling of the black and white keys can be heard up and down State Street, as Pianos on State is in full swing just in time for the New Noise Music Festival this weekend. Folks such as piano teacher Benjamin Ott (pictured) look forward to this time every year, for it’s an annual opportunity to show off their skills. “Anytime I get to play in public is always a great time,” said Ott.

And this Thursday, October 20, at 3 p.m., The Santa Barbara Independent will be live-streaming ALO frontman Zach Gill from one lucky piano via our Facebook page, facebook.com/sbindependent. Tune in!
