They're surprisingly good for being non-mainstream. Heck, they've appeared on Letterman, and yet they still languish in obscurity. I have yet to manage to attend a show even though I probably only live 20mi from most of them (and have run across relatives of band members through work, but not actual band members).
Also, funny pic below. Haven't played any recent games, but after hearing Yahtzee rant about it repeatedly, I find it quite hilarious.
