Re: How Tight is the Beacon Security?

#145283 2 years, 6 months ago
Tuesday night there was a security chick standing beside me to the left of the soundboard on a radio guiding other security to people whenever she saw a lighter spark. i've seen a few people tossed out in the first two nights. Keep it cool and you should be okay.

Patdown going in - pretty thorough, no wands to metal detectors. Security was OK as long as you aren't being overly-obious, just stay in the crowds to do your thing.

What about outside the show? I heard stories of NYC cops (uniformed and plainclothes) being very zealous outside of MSG and Best Buy in the past. Met a guy in Albany in November that missed the MSG show and spent a night in jail for a gram of weed.

my opinion is it may be easier inside the show than outside, easier to locate the usher working your section, no undercovers inside the show, and the distraction of the music and crowd can only help.

Plus inside the show if you get caught they just throw you out. Outside the show, the nypd will be glad to ruin your entire night with a stay at the graybar hotel.
Takin' it in stride!

Might try some of those e-cigs that hold hash oil in them! I have a buddy who sells em on lot, and if you're cool, he'll probably have the oil to put in them, too!

I feel bad for y'all having to be so worried about smoking pot, even outside the place?? Going to jail for a gram of weed??? It just blows my mind that kind of thing still goes on.
I went walkin' out last summer

I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there

Being a local, it is true about the cops around MSG and the security at Best Buy were tossing people when they saw you light up. I have been smoking in NYC for alot of years and it is WAY tighter on the street than ever. A buddy and I got popped by and undercover, plain clothes dude in a Yankees hat, a block from MSG. They arrested my buddy for "smoking in public"...didnt bust me because HE was holding the joint...and hauled him away in an unmarked paddy wagon. He got out about midnight and the judge tossed the ticket with no fine a few months later. It was all about just hassling the Heads smoking on the streets of NYC. Then at Best Buy...another buddy got tossed 1st song, 1st set as soon as he lit up....BUTTT the security there was cooler...they escorted him from his seat as if they were throwing him out, then before they got to the front door, they let my buddy go back to his seat with a warning. I'm sure it depends on the security guard though....
