My band is playing a gig next saturday in our local teen center. We will be playing in a gym about the size of any regular high school gym. The problem is we dont have any spotlights or any method of lighting, and dont want to use the gym lights because they would be too bright and illuminate the entire room, which would suck.

Does anyone have any suggestions on if it is possible to rent lights, or any suggestions on cheap but good bang for your buck type lights to light up a gig?

We are expecting around 100 or so people if that makes any difference.

You can rent fairly good quality spotlights from many music stores.
