I was curious on how much a eq pedal effects the sound of the guitar and if its really needed for a show.
It's not absolutely necessary, but it's a very useful thing to have. I would strongly recommend one (although I'd be nice to see your setup first, as there might be other things more useful for you)
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
It could come in handy in a show if you boosted the mids on it and stepped on it during a solo. You would cut through very nicely with that mid boost.
