In many cities, street musicians are a part of the cityscape. Here in Washington, D.C., buskers perform all over the city, morning, noon and night. This video features three different buskers -- a violinist, a singer and a guitarist -- who frequently perform on local street corners for passing pedestrians.

For the last 18 years, a group of D.C. roller-hockey players have spent their weekend mornings playing hockey just strides away from the White House.

A group of activists traveled by bus from Baltimore, Md., to Washington, D.C., today to urge lawmakers to cut defense spending and focus more on funding domestic programs.

G-20 Summit

In 2009, Pittsburgh hosted the high-profile G-20 Summit. As part of City Paper's coverage of the event, Chris ventured into the field with a video camera in hand. Here is some of the raw footage he shot as demonstrators took to the streets to protest the Summit. 

In this video, protesters clash with riot police after demonstrators start throwing rocks at officers blocking a Pittsburgh street.

Protesters begin their march through Pittsburgh's East End streets. Then they confront riot police and the infamous, ear-splitting LRAD.
