What venue is that? Who was playing?
Be On Key Psychedelic Ripple in Denver.  A great little deadhead venue. This show was Garaj Mahal.

Please post a link! Love Fareed/Garaj...
I will, it just might take a few days. Just got back from seeing them in Nederland.

Bringing this back on topic, tonight I tied my stand to the soundboard cage using those flexible plastic coated wire things on the upper part of the railing and using my hoodie to tie it to the lower part of the railing.  You know what they say, "if it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid."

flexible plastic coated wire things

I use one of these far more often than the straps.  The one I have is dense foam covered and a bit heavier duty than the rubbery plastic coated style. Used to have two and wish I could find the other one.

These are the ones I've been using: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Nite-Ize-18-in-Gear-Tie-in-Bright-Orange-2-Pack-GT18-2PK-31/203210990

I picked up a couple more the other day because they have come in handy so often.  I also use them to tie my stand to the railing at Red Rocks.

I think I have two 18" and picked up two 24" the other day.  The 18s were great for the most part but I figured it wouldn't hurt to get a couple with a bit more reach just in case.

After you add another pair of mics to that and snake it through a balcony guard rail  - with a safety lanyard attached - with your cables running back to your third row seat.... :yack:

After watching Edtyre snap a windtech in two pieces, I get a little nauscious when I see one supporting just about anything.

I use one to clamp my MK41/Vark bar/A20 setup to my stand and sometimes to my extension pole.

Never worried too much about just an active setup or one pair of full body mics on it.

If It works for you and you're comfortable with it, go for it. I threw mine in the tool box after seeing one break like that.

You can't beat a Superclamp, IMO.
