I'll be the 3rd...

Music Stands: I don't think the audience cares, so why not?
Shorts Onstage: Only on the beach gig, IMHO.
Classic Rock: If they can dance to it, sure.
Lights: Enough so you can read what's sitting on your music stand.
Subs: Helps the dance floor to get shakin'. Yep.

I just use the Apple Photos app, I'll write an arrangement in Word, save them as PDF, then convert them to JPG. Or take a pic of a chart with the iPhone.

Calypso Jam is great for PDF files and free :) :

Music Stands - not for me, I memorize very quickly. For those that do, make sure it's not blocking the tweeter on your monitor!
Shorts Onstage - My fiancÚ has informed me that this will never happen again
Classic Rock - Heh, I have a regular Saturday gig this year that will be all classic rock cover bands - Beach Boys, Beatles, Stones etc.
Lights - if it's dark
Subs----- If the venue is large enough to need them of course

No venue is too small for subs ;) Of course, you may not need them for all types of music, but that's a different issue...

Music Stands: Yes (mine's an iPad Mini running OnSong, and it's also the control for our mixer)
Shorts Onstage: Generally, no, but there are exceptions, like "pool party" gigs.
Classic Rock: Absolutely!
Lights: Someone else will have to bring them. My car's already overflowing with the PA and my keyboards.
Subs: Whumpa-thumpa! Gotta have 'em!
Hawaiian Shirts: Are cool!
Sandals: Only with black socks. Seriously, no open-toed shoes on stage. There's too much stuff up there to hurt your feet on. Steel-toed boots are a better bet.

Music stands.....no, if your reading your not paying attention to your audience
Shorts....only in summer if you got the legs for it
Classic rock...maybe, different meanings to people. To me classic rock is Motown era. To my kid its creed
Lights....not unless your paid enough to make it worth the investment
Subs.....yes when the room calls for them. Powerful but easy to haul is my thinking
Hawaiian shirts...only at hawaiian gigs, luaus, or jimmy Buffett tribute bands
Sandals....summer only and not with socks
iPads......better than music stands and cool if your running a mackie DL

Your never to old to learn something stupid
