I'm a fan, still listen to them. They are quite earnest, which is part of the appeal, to me. It's strange - I much prefer my books, television series and movies to be cynical, but I love optimistic, hippiesque and, well, earnest music. Anyway, I hope you have fun!
they were great last night! you guys are all right that they are a very, very earnest band, but i think that's why i like them so much-- they were geniunely so happy to play and so grateful that people showed up. they're a very sweet and lovely band
