any way around a tube amp?

after playing acoustic for a few years i'm now in the market for a new electric rig. as a student, though, the problem is $$$. a fine amp for harp can be costly. this leads to a couple questions:

1 - any good cheap amps out there big enough for a small venue (in case i should want to go to an open jam)?

2 - a post from bluzharper--god bless your knowledgeable soul--a while back (http://www.harmonicalessons.com/wwwboard/messages/4836.html) discussed going straight to the PA through an overdrive pedal. i already own a small combo, just not one that does harp justice. obviously, buying a tube screamer/blues driver to run into it would be cheaper than buying a 59 bassman. has anyone else found bawling tone running a pedal into a crappy amp?

i thank you in advance for your help.
