Video audio question.

How can I shoot video from my canon powershot point and shoot camera with the audio not sounding fuzzy? I go to shoot local bands in the Hollywood area all the time for my website, http://www.billgeneralphotos.com, and I also have a video section. But I've been experiencing problems with the sound. Could it be that I'm too close to the stage? I do plan on upgrading to a Rebel T3i next year, so with a DSLR camera, is it possible to attach an external mic?

    My camera is a Canon PowerShot SX130 IS.

    I'm not much of an audio guy outside the home theatre, but I would think an external mic (if compatible with your Canon) is the way to go.
    A lot of cameras don't have good audio quality with their built in mics, which also means the closer you are to the music the more it will distort the sound.
