Looping rookie needs advice

Hi all,
I'm just getting started with the concept of live looping, so I'm looking for all the help I can get. 
First, I'm a drumset player.  I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about doing this, especially when it comes to gear.  I have a Boss SP-505 on order, which may or may not do the trick.  From looking around at the setups of different people on the LD profiles page, it looks like a lot of folks are using the Echoplex.  Any thoughts? 
In any case, my real quandary is about how to transmit sounds to the machine and then get it to a club's soundboard.  I'm not sure whether I should mic every drum, send it through a mixer, and then send a feed to a sound guy, or what?  The problem then, of course, is that I would have two mics on every drum -- mine and the clubs.  No something I want to do.  But, well....?
I'd appreciate any and all thoughts on the subjects -- I've been super psyched about getting into live looping for awhile now, and I want to do it right.
Thanks, and glad to be here.
