Band's ending - is gig put off? (10)


I believe the answer is:


'put off?' is the definition.
(putting off is a kind of disconcerting)

'band's ending is gig' is the wordplay.
'ending' suggests the final letters.
'gig' becomes 'concert'.
The final letter of 'band' is 'd'.

(Other definitions for disconcert that I've seen before include "Bother" , "Disturb, unsettle" , "upset" , "Shake up" , "Throw" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
