I've been playing some interesting wallpaper gigs recently in some pretty high-profile locations in the Minneapolis area and I've noticed something that has concerned me a little bit. These gigs have involved loading in at loading docks of skyscrapers, landmarks, and government buildings which also involved a security checkpoint. For all of these I added in a good 15 minutes of inspection of my bass and gear to my estimated load-in time. When I got there, literally each checkpoint did nothing but wave hi and there were a couple that just made an obligatory comment, "what a big guitar," etc. So I guess I'm wondering if people from other cities have had this same experience? Are things this 'lax in New York? Chicago? I guess if I was working security for the tallest building in a city, I would want to at least take a peak in the bass bag and inspect the amp a little bit before I let a guy take the express elevator to the 50th floor..
