Recording loud concerts with minimal gear?

I've got a good video-capable DSLR camera, and a good external microphone for it. But when I'm at concerts, the audio is blown out. Help?

There are a couple of existing questions out there on MeFi that cover general "How can I get good audio for my camera" issues. I'm looking to solve a specific problem: my Canon 5DmkII and accompanying Rode video mic
do a great job unless I'm near a loud audio source, like a speaker at a concert. Are there any intermediary boxes I can hook up between the mic and the camera that will compress the audio? Am I asking for the impossible?
I'm new to this side of things, after spending a lot of time with still photography, and I'm hoping that the MeFi hivemind knows some tricks that can help...
