I was curious about how you guys handle the breakdown period after you play a solo gig. Being a bassist obviously requires a lot more work than a solo acoustic guitarist who can just throw his guitar in a case and carry it around with him. With bass, you have a lot of very expensive equipment that probably requires a few trips to the car. Do you have to leave some of your stuff unattended at times? After a show is also when everyone wants to talk to you, buy you a beer, etc....do you try to pack up while talking, or load up your gear first and then come back? Around here, leaving your gear in your car is probably less safe than keeping it in the club even if you can't keep an eye on it because you're talking to people. How do you usually handle it?
