OK so my band is starting to play shows and Im wondering what I should get as an amp. Now I have an Ibanez 30 watt, but use my friends Peavey halfstack for shows.
I play punk, metal and alternative, so do I need a halfstack? or what else should I be looking at? I mostly play just small bar sized shows. help me out!

Probably a 2x12 combo or head and 2x12 cab. What Peavey do you use?
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

to play small shows you really only need a combo.
1x12 or 2x12 should do the job fine.
try out some amps at your local guitar shops

get a 2x15 cab
yeah maybe those small comobo amps should do the job, but having something of bigger size at 5 (unlike 10 on the small things) sound way better!
obviously this is just an opinion some people say the complete opossite!
i dont like pushing my amp too hard (well yeah i do its a valve amp ) BUT i mean i like having good volumewihtout pushing it and without micing it (small-medium places)
cheers ! its all w.e works for u best

what about tube vs solid state, I know solid state is cheaper, but is tube worth it?

In short. Yes.

My peice of **** squier even sounds good on my tube amp. There is no question that it is worth.
I'm Joel. I play guitar. I am a student. I look at the cost of tuition, not in a dollar value, but in the guitars I'm sacrificing now, to be able to buy later.

3 to 500 bucks wont get you any sort of decent halfstack anyways unless you go used. So a good tube combo is what your gonna want to look for.
