I've taken quite a few video clips. One day it took wonderful clips then the next the sound was gone. I can't figure out what happened. There's just no sound whatsoever. Did I do something wrong or what? I used it just like usual.

Why not? It's a still camera that also happens to record short video clips. After all, a video clip is just a sequence of still images taken one after another quickly. Sound is a totally different thing, requiring additional hardware such as microphone and speaker. If it did sound, would you expect it to do stereo? Would you expect high-fidelity four-channel sound?
Many still cameras that have the ability to record video clips have no sound. There just isn't a microphone. I don't know this particular camera intimately, but what you describe is quite normal for cameras of this sort, and not a fault. If you want sound on the clips, you can dub it on later by editing the clips on a computer.

The issue may be that you have the clips there but they will
use the same naming convention as the photo's you have taken. On a Fuji it should be
DSCF#### with the # being organized numbering. You can try to go into
your Folder Options in windows and under View check to make sure that Hide extensions
of known file types is not checked. That way you will be able to tell
which is an .avi file and which is a jpg.
On most digital cameras of this variety (but not all), the video recording is more of an add-on feature and not its main function. The video clip is actually a series of still pictures taken continuously to give semblance of video. For this reason the video clips is a couple of seconds at most. In the same token, there is no feature for audio recording (no mic, no electronics) hence the playback is absent of sound.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Your digital camera is not a professional recording device.
A live gig, especially indoors, or if you're close to the stage, means very high decibels, and you need something more serious if you really want to hear it later.
You should get a recording device that can tune to different sensitivities. My old mini disc was great for this before it died.
You also need a decent mic.
Better luck next time! who was performing btw?
