So I arranged it for the original band I play with to take the opening spot for a larger show I am co headlining in my tribute band. I am currently using my 2 peavey basses for the original in standard tuning, and my goth Thunderbird and olp hot rodded passive stingray in drop c for the tribute. I don't like gigging without a backup, and the schedule is too tight to allow replacing a string without losing a song or 2. So I am pretty sure I will get there early enough for a good parking spot by the gate to the backstage area, which is in front parking lot and should be well watched and visible from the door. And leave the other 2 basses in the car when playing with the other band. Or perhaps "backstage", but at this venue, backstage is an ez up tent in the back patio, seperated from the smoking patio by the equivalent of a backyard fence/gate. And we will be sharing it with the other headliner, and possibly the support act as well. What would all of you do? I know many will say bring one bass for each band and just chance it.
