The Postal Service @ Fox Theater, 4/15/2013

The band were definitely one of the highlights of Coachella and seemed to be gathering steam as they had the entire crowd in the palm of their hand with the electronic pulses of "The District Sleeps Alone." The entire audience knew the album so well that it was difficult to find a spot on the floor where someone wasn't singing along.

The setlist was surgically selected as "We Will Become Silhouettes" kept the energy level high as Ben Gibbard ran back to a drum kit for the final minutes of the song. "Sleeping In" was flawless as Jimmy Tamborello replicated the hushed vocals behind his keyboard and laptop station. Laura Burhenn delicately tapped on her xylophone for the twinkly intro of "Turn Around" as Jenny Lewis intertwined her honey soaked vocals.

Throughout the evening, the energy in the room was palpable. During "Nothing Better," the crowd erupted when Lewis sang the female counterpoint section of the song as Lewis and Gibbard danced together in the center of the stage. The spacey vibe of "Recycled Air" was replicated beautifully with Tamborello adding some vocoder processed vocals at the ending of the song. - [OC Weekly]

Fresh off weekend 1 of Coachella 2013, the newly-reunited Postal Service (with help from Jenny Lewis) played Pomona, CA's Fox Theater on Monday (4/15) with openers Baths. Their setlist was identical to what they played in Reno last week.

Ben and Jimmy and Jenny play Coachella again this weekend and will be in NYC for two shows at Barclays Center in June. More pictures from Fox Theater are below.
