I'm not looking for anything big. I don't gig yet. Just something that I can get really loud, and something I can bring to a friends house to jam.

If it matters, I play pretty much all types of rock/punk/metal (clean and distorted). This amp seems versatile. Is it? I'm going to be playing a Ibanez RG1570 through it soon enough. Good combo? Ha

Grab a Vox AVT50 - it's cheaper and it will get you much better clean tones, and closer to real Marshall (not to mention Soldano) tones.

Yep. But you'd probably only need the 50 watt version at most. A 100 watt valve amp is usually way more than you need.

How much watts are good for small gigging? In like coffee houses basically.

In coffee houses, the volume produced by a 15-20 watt valve amp would be sufficient. Large venues would be better off with a 30 watt valve amp. 50 watts is absolutely plenty for any gig.

For coffeehouses, 15-30 watt is more than enough. If you want the Marshall sound and low wattage, Marshall Artist combo or head would be your best option.

So is 100 watt overkill basically? Ha

Yep. You could still get it if you wanted a 2x12, but you wouldn't really need all that power.

And since tubes sound best when they're cranked, a small amp is best. You'll be able to turn it up to the sweet spot, then mic it if it's not loud enough.
