I've done a lot of gig photography with film, but not any so far with digital.
I have a Canon EOS300D which would be quite capable of this kind of thing, I just haven't had the opportunity yet. (My PhotographyBLOG portfolio was all shot on film).
You say you want image stabilization - one way of getting around the low-light problem is to have a camera that can take the equivalent of a very fast "film speed" - ISO 1600 at a minimum. My gig work with film was on 1600 and under most circumstances that's adequate.
So you want to consider how sensitive the camera is (ie what's the fastest equivalent film speed it will do).
As for sub-$1000 - hmmm, I don't know (since I'm in the UK and not much help there!).
