Alright...

Is a 5w tube amp enough to keep up with a pretty loud rock drummer.

If not, how could i possibly make it louder without having to buy a loud PA system.

Thanks

No. It won't get over a loud drummer.
You can't make it louder without mic'ing it up to something...

1. Hardly, especially if you want cleans
2. You can buy more speakers to make it sound fuller. Won't technically make it louder but your sound will have more body to make it more apparent.

Alright, so it would be alot safer and a better investment to just buy a 20w instead?

Get another amp. That's what I had to do. I was stuck with a Stonehead 10W or something for awhile.

Had to downgrade. WAY too loud for college. It was either that or they were going to boot me from my dorm. So it's being kept at home.

Wow that's crazy. You're smart. You can gain life experience more quickly by living several lives all at once.

Wat

I mean, it's cool that you are going to college and all, but you are 47. Dude, what happened?

Also, you can get an attenuator for your HT60.

And a new amp that isn't Blackstar

Obviously, half-stacks are generally most guitar player's best bet in terms of sound quality, volume level, and suitability for most practice/gigging situations. If that's not in your budget, you could probably find a used 100w solid state combo amp in the 150-300 dollar range that's gonna do a lot more for you than a little practice amp whether it's tube or not. In terms of investment, 20 watts is not going to be much more worth your money than 5.

Anything over 15W tube should be able to hang with a drummer... depending on how much you play clean. The cleaner you need, the more watts you need. If you pretty much pay everything with some amount of grit, a 15W (like a tweaker, etc) would probably cut it.

As far as an amp being too loud... meh. You're unlikely to find an amp that gives you super tone at bedroom / dorm volumes. That's what cheap SS practice amps are for. I guess I'm spoiled having neighbors that never complain, no matter how loud I play.

You know, telling people you hate them and that they can go f*ck themselves in every post you make might not be the best thing when asking for help.

You're right... If he was interested in helpful advice. If he was interested in getting a rise out of people it would be the absolute best thing.
