How important is crowd reaction to the quality of your performance? I saw you guys at Santa Ana and San Diego, and the crowd was much better (and so were you guys!) for the second show. Do you tend to take requests more readily when the crowd is more into it?
I actually thought both shows were great! But really, it all depends on the situation and it's all kinda random. We played once in a small town in NC, and it was a "snow storm" 30 kids came, and we ended up taken requests and played for 2 hours. Totally random, but fun as fuck. We like to mix it up.
