Is this option a "must have" in a digital SLR?

I would be using it mostly as a point-and-shoot camera, but I would like to be able to sometimes do photography in low-light conditions (i.e. inside a club or at a concert, etc) where lighting is not always the best or controllable. I would want a camera to be able to take these without a flash.

Looking for a camera that would be able to take good pics in the 1600 ISO or above, and someone had mentioned to me about the anti-shake feature (most photos I would take would have some sort of zoom used).

Anti-shake is not ‘MUST HAVE' in any camera. It is nice feature that is one of the points when someone is looking for a camera. There are more reliable ways to reduce camera shake. They are tripod, higher shutter speed, good camera handling.

Canon and Nikon have a lens-built anti-shake.
Sony and latest Pentax have in-camera body anti-shake
I do not know for sure about other makers
