I don't know about "overrated" but they're definitely boring as fuck live. At least they were the three times I've seen them anyway.
Levitation Festival - 5/8 - 5/10 - Carson Creek Ranch
Courtney Barnett - 6/5 - The Mohawk
The Avett Brothers - 6/27 - Whitewater Amphitheater
Death Grips - 7/18 - The Mohawk
Kraftwerk - 9/25 - Bass Concert Hall
I enjoy them. They have a way of getting under your skin, in a good way.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
being overrated is not a criticism of the band, it's a criticism of the fans.

You would have to be a fan to decide whether they're overrated or not. I thought they were okay, as an unbiased bystander in the beer gardens, but can't for the life of me remember anything I heard from them. Was it the two watered down beers I'd had at that point, the fact that I'm a snob, that the band is sort of boring if you don't have boobs in your mouth, or a combination of all of these things? Don't let me decide for you, though I won't be seeing them again until they return to Coachella. Vote.
