You'd be surprised what you can cram into a hatchback.

 

Anyhow, I usually manage with a handcart, a gig-bag, and a subway token. :D

 

It's amazing what taking public transportation can do to your sense of ESSENTIALS for gigs.

You got that right! I remember one time when I crammed myself, my drums, two bandmates, and their guitar, bass, and amps into my Chevette (yes, I have a long history of joyfully driving crappy Chevy products).

I wish there was a rail system here in Minneapolis, even though I guess it's not big enough to need one all through downtown. They just started a light-rail line but it basically just goes around the metro area and there aren't many of options. There are plenty of buses but loading gear on them is not convenient and they get stuck in the terrible traffic just like my truck does.

RockwoodB,

 

The rail options in my part of the country are nice.

 

Buses are also not bad, as long as it's just you and a gig-bag. Anything more is unmanagable.

 

Luckily, there are plenty of playing venues with working backlines. Often, it is just me and a gig-bag. Talk about bliss:

 

- show up to gig

- unzip gig bag

- attach strap and don bass

- uncoil cable

- plug cable into bass

- plug cable into backline amp

- play

 

Fantabulous.
