A fast lens works wonders. I have done some studio and live shots for a local band. Using a flash will pretty much ruin the mood that is the stage and club set. You will tend to end up with pretty contrasty photos especially if there are spot lights. You may also miss with your focusing with a fast lens but take lots of shots until you get the feel for it. These are shot with an 85mm f1.8 (135mm equivalent) at very high ISO.
