I have to say I really didn't think they were very good. Way too much improv.

They had two songs that the crowd responded very well to. They should focus on which ever songs those were.

when they sang and harmonized that was good, and all fleet foxes-y but when they descended into noise or like randomly played softly for 10 minutes the audience stopped paying attention to them.

Focus on the songs the most amount of people like.

Yeah, all artists should just cater to the crowd.

Wait, what?

Brian,
I wasn't the biggest fan either but What are you, A&R? Musicians should do whatever they should want to play.

ps. it wasnt improvised. in case you didnt notice since you weren't paying attention, all their songs went from atonal to tonal some of the band were playing "out" notes others werent and then it gelled to everyone playing something in the same key in a definitive pattern.
