Default FZ38 - VIDEO in very low-light indoor concert - suggestions

As I'm going tonight to an indoor concert with very low-light conditions... I'm asking for your suggestions for the settings of my recording video. Because I saw the stage, I can say there will be some small spot lights behind the singers/band, so I'll have to try the filming with those low lights pointed directly at my camera.

Please give me some advice about the settings I should try to use (fixed focus? etc.?).

The best effect Ive found for indoor lighted stages is to use shutter priority. The shutter speed that you will use depends on the motion of the subjects. At a rock concert you will have to use 1/20 sec or better and time the shot when motion is minimum. Possibly for slow classical pieces 1/15 might work.

It is paramount that you sit as close as possible to the stage/subjects so that, ideally, zoom is not needed.
