I have shot a lot of photos in dark entertainment venues.  Since Pentax upgraded the autofocus for low light, the plus is that it good and accurate, the negative is that it sees everything and has to decide what is going to focus on.  I assume you are shooting bands and entertainers.  One of sources of inconsistencies in dark venues is the amount of objects the camera can focus on; microphones, monitors, instruments, the person, the audience, lights, the background, etc.  Try testing the focus on a wall with a poster or something in low light and see if it is consistent.  If not, it may be the camera.
