I took these a while ago of local band Adam Evolving. The lighting was pretty bad, but I did my best. Plus, smoke machines are rad. Feedback is encouraged.

I like #2, bit IMO it could be framed better: You cut off feet and headstock.
#1: Doesn't work for me.
#3: Focus on the guitarplayer. Not a big issue, if the singer weren't blocking him.
#4: I think I'd have framed wider or a lot closer… Also: too dark and the drummer is blocked.

Agree lighting doesn't look all that good.

Small venues are the most difficult to work with. Lighting is always a nightmare. I'm sure if they have some bigger names (they will bring their own lighting typically), making the environment more in your favor.

As bright as Stage Lighting sometimes looks, it can be really dark. I shoot a local venue once a month, going tonight in fact. Lights, smoke and this band has a Laser kit of some sort! It's going to be an interesting night. I wish the lighting guy at this venue would leave on the White lights in front, and not be so concerned with the colored ones which are all behind. It still makes for a dramatic show.

BTW, sometimes it helps to focus in on details versus the whole stage. It makes it easier to find the backlit highlights, beauty of the guitars craftsmanship, facial expressions etc. It tightens up composition. When i critique my work, I ask myself "why" did I shoot that angle, expose for that element or compose with those objects in the frame. I do like the light spilling through the smoke!

Yeah I think you missed a good opportunity here. Hopefully you can shoot that venue again and work on it, I feel like these could be really punchy with a bit of post work.
