The first half of their set was tentative and a bit underwhelming, but Florence and the Machine quickly got more comfortable during their second show ever in the United States. By the end of the set, Florence Welch and company had the entire floor of the 9:30 Club jumping up and down, which as many bands know is no easy feat. A noticeably thinner crowd stayed for the Temper Trap, ostensibly the headliners, but it was clear that many folks were there for Florence.
