When we enter the post COVID world will the world of cross-armed concert-goes be something of the past? Heck, if you spot anyone not having a good time in 2002, they ought you a beer.

That approach has resonated deeply with people, and just since October 2020 the band has had over 5000 people sign up for their virtual experience “Camp Feels Good”, and seen their videos explode on TikTok with millions of streams.
