First of three Postal Service shows this week!
Sadly the same setlist for all three, but they did vary the opening acts-- Big Frieda tonight was.... interesting. Twerking looks like a serious workout!
The introduction to The District Sleeps Alone Tonight isn't all that complicated, but it leads into a wonderful set. A few unexpected surprises with Our Secret (who the heck is Beat Happening?), There's Never Enough Time, and the abrupt transition into a few songs, but it is very, very good to see them-- and they've improved a lot in the past few months. The intro to Natural Anthem is so dark and haunting (for a happy band) it's almost worth the price of admission for that song alone!
The next show is even more epic...
