But, honestly, the venue paled in comparison to Disney. Since Grizzly Bear is decidedly not a dance band, but more like a chamber band, the contrast between the two venues was a lot to overcome. That said, in the year-and-a-half since the Disney show, the band has released the critically acclaimed Veckatimest, has garned a ton of attention and drawn a whole new legion of fans. It's not fair to compare the two.

Singer/guitarist Daniel Rossen gave a shout-out to LA, which is his hometown. The crowd embraced him as one of their own.

The audience was quiet, respectful and dead still throughout the evening. The row of burly security guards who protected the band from the crowd had an easy night; this was not a stage-diving or moshing crowd, to say the least.
