Which lenses for concert

Next week my friends' band has concert in some club.
Which of the lenses will be the best for this event. I am not sure about the club itself but I can assume it is not so big and probably quite dark.

My current lenses are:
a) 18-55 kit (F3.5-5.6)
b) 55-210 (F4.5-6.3)
c) 16 F2.8 pancake
d) Sigma 30 F2.8

I have two NEX'es my 5N and C3 of my wife. As I am not comfortable to change lanses on such event so I want to choose 2 lenses one for each of camera.
I think that definitly I will take 55-210 as it has tele and is brighter then kit lens on 55.

What about the second lens. Sigma seems the brightest but it is sharp I am not sure it will produce good atmosphere for that event.
Pancake seems to be too wide.
Kit is a bit too dark but it has zoom posibilities which may be handy.
What is your recommendation?
