How do you set-up a typical session?

I'd like to hear how other folks would set-up their session given a typical band coming in, working blind, as in the first time you hear them is after they've set-up in your live room.
The one I tracked last night was 5 members, drummer with a 5-piece kit, bassist, guitarist, female vocalist/ guitarist, and a second female vocalist splitting the lead duties.
They booked two evenings to do a 5 - 6 song demo, but I've got a day in-between where they're still set-up in the live room so I can snap some pics. I'm interested in the nuts and bolts of how you would set them up in your space, what you would throw up on the mic stands, your signal paths, what you would record to, how your cue mix is achieved, etc.

I'd say this, you set up how YOU like; just be ready to record when the band shows up. Then you're the hero, not the zero!!!
