Bylaw officers tell the Brothers Dube it's time for bedtime

Update (June 5): The band took this video down shortly after it was posted. I asked them why. Their reply:
"We were too loud and we didn't have a permit... We just want to keep raising money for charity while having fun. We will find something that works... Just wanna stay focused on one cause."

Update (July 13:) The video is back online & posted below.

The Brothers Dube, the trio of young brothers who famously played with Arcade Fire at Bluesfest, were busking last night on Elgin Street.  Just before 11pm, Ottawa's bylaw police dropped by and asked them to pack it in.  Because you don't want to have too much noise on Elgin Street after 11pm, people are trying to sleep.
