I have a 300D at the moment, which I am using for live music
photography. I don't mean big arenas with plenty of light, I'm
talking about 'intimate' rock venues: hot, sweaty, noisy and dark.
I like to shoot with available light so that means cranking ISO way
up and using fast glass. I am currently using the Canon 50mm f1.8
and Sigma 24mm f1.8.

You should have a look at the Canon 35/1.4 or 50/1.4, I guess.

1) Buffer. If I'm at a gig where you can only shoot for the first
three songs, I really struggle because I spend half the time
waiting for the buffer to clear. I shoot RAW.

Be sure to get a fast CF-Card, like the SanDisk UltraII or even better the ExtremeIII.
