I'd just get a Yongnuo YN-560 II manual speedlite. It's just about as powerful as a 580EX II and in some regards it performs better than the 580EX II. It's a full manual flash but if you're using it for bounce in a night club or dont mind learning how to use a flash without using ETTL it's well worth it. It only costs $70 too.
