C&C on my first gig?

Well this one was fairly easy. It was a folk/acoustic show so there wasn't much band movement, audience was sitting, and lighting (although not great) was more than workable. I was able to shoot the whole gig with my 50mm f/1.4 which was nice. I'm picking up the 28mm f/2.8 this week for hardcore gigs which are often wayyy tighter and way less calm. I'm worried because even with this amount of light I was shooting at f/1.4 so having a 2.8 limit on my new lense is a little troublesome. I didn't shoot the first few acts because they were lit solely by a dim limp to rear-left of artist and you couldn't do anything with that. Anyways, here they are:

Self crit: I kind of sucked at focusing on faces. Focus is often on shoulders/arm from side angles. Lens flare in a couple (which i actually don't mind), aaaand that's about it.

P.S.: everyone check out Treelight Room, one of the bands that played that night. They're insanely good!
