If this is a venue you do regularly, you might consider asking the venue to install a simple lighting bar or two on the ceiling.
At one small venue, I went so far as to sell them some lights too!
You could also get some of the drop-ceiling mounts that clamp directly to the metal frame or replace a tile. No permanent mods needed, though slightly niche in deployment.

Here's a better pic of my speaker brackets with the Par 38's.

Hey Steve, do you have any close to photos of those?
In my head I imagined just a short bar with a spacer down to the mount points of the speakers, but maybe you have a better way.

I wanted more height which looks better IMO. They all use the same M10 bolt, so I can unscrew from the bar and attach the light directly to the fly points if needed.

See attached photo and my drawing for manufacture.
The knobs come from JW Winco:

I made something similar to Steve by using some off the shelf corner braces. I got them powder coated black from Amazon. Two 12 brackets  bolted together in a C work great. One M10 bolt mounts them on top of the mains. Its solid!

Go to the Winco site I posted and you can get a hand-knob for $2. No wrench required and speeds up setup. Nice rig BTW and you can't go wrong with DSR's.
