Concert Photography & Band Portraits

Just make sure like Greg says that you know your camera and settings 110% bc there will be moments when you have to adjust fast and be ready to capture the moment. If your fooling with your settings and chimping then you will miss it.
As soon as you can afford it, get that 70-200 and you will fall in love.
Capturing a moment and freezing it in time.

Nikon D700, Nikkor 24mm 1.4, 50mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8
But yeah, give it a go. I think the 35mm, being a fast lens, it will work fine under those low light situations. Since you're using a crop sensor, its as good as a nifty fifty. So, you'd still get great results when you're close to them.
Like what Josh mentioned, try some shots with your 18-105 and bump up the ISO to compensate for the low light.
Its always great to practice a genre, and when you get well adept to it, and once you have enough cash to get a 70-200 f/2.8, you'll be even waaay better. After all, it's not only the glass that will give you great images, it is your experience in the field as well.
Best of Luck!
Happy Shooting, my friend!
I agree totaly.
concert photography is really hard with those stage lights and opposite dark areas.
I think a fast lens with f2.8 or better and a high iso range camera will help alot.
Bigger is Better
