Best point-and-shoot camera for live music?

I go to a lot of live music shows and I film them with my little Canon Ixus 980 IS. Sound is fantastic but the image quality is starting to show its age compared with the new, super fancy HD compacts (and so is the sensor that is gathering way too many missing pixels). So here's the question: does anybody know of any recent models with similar sound quality performance?
I'm perfectly aware I'd be better off with a camcorder but that's not an option since most venues wouldn't admit it. It has to be something that can fit in a coat pocket.
Also I know the point-and-shoot market is not one where they're going to pour money on something that doesn't look good in a spec list (like a billion pointless megapixels do), but I lucked out with this one so there must be other models knocking about where they got that right even if it was by accident.
