I don't think so.  If they are performing in a public place then they  
can be recorded.  On the other hand if someone were to pass by with a  
getto blaster or a TV then you might not be able to make the  
resulting recording public ;-)  I don't think that there is any law  
against recording though.

Take with the usual grain, IANAL etc.
