    hmm... If you bounce the flash, keep in mind what color the ceiling is because it will pick up color. also what shape it is. if the shows in a basement or somewhere there maybe rafter showing that will stop your flash. or somewhere there maybe a light haning that will reflect differently. Id say just point the flash at them. and just do a fill flash. if its in a house most of the light maybe from above and cast shadows down on them.
    as for film Id probably go with a faster speed. I have had success shooting bands with 400 speed but you can go faster expecially if they are a active band while they play. You can talk them about color or b&w, In a house Id go with b&w if the band plans on using the pics for something because grandmas fancy old lamp in the corner wont be so distractive... also with b&w you wont have to worrie about the light from the flash being a different color than the ceiling lights...
    good luck.
