Obviously I would have used more light. My response was actually to Trey:
If you want low light, then you should go Canon. Even the Rebel is better than most of the stuff that Nikon offers. I've worked with most of the DSLRs these companies have produced, and for low light, Nikon is teh suxxorz. My 20D at 1600 is cleaner than a D2Xs at 800. Well, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but not by much.
So I took a quick shot with the highest ISO my camera goes to just to show how Nikon has improved with noise.

While you guys have better cameras than I do ...I do know the entry level cameras from Canon had a lot better low light performance than the entry Nikons. The Nikon D40-D60 compared to the Rebel XS-XSi
Joe PS please note the TAmron I referenced is F2.8 through the whole focal range, unlike the kit lens that where the aperture changes as you zoom. Also, learn to shot in manual it really isn't that difficult and your results will be much much better.
