Re: when to do you change lenses?
2

It depends on when I feel most comfortable doing the swap. At a larger venue with a sellout crowd and a "photog pit" designated by security, I will do the swaps in between songs... or stick with one lens for the whole set if I don't feel compelled to swap. A smaller venue that I am familiar with might raise my comfort level to where I will swap upon whim.

I try to maximize the difference when I do a swap, so if my lenses are 24, 35, 50, and 85mm; I will shoot them at 50 -> 24 -> 85 -> 35 (in that order). I always start with a 50 for larger rooms and a 35 for smaller rooms. For shorter sets I might not swap at all, for longer sets I might hit three or four lenses over the course of the performance.
