The Postal Service @ Mondavi Center, Davis, CA last night (via @naseemk)
Postal

It's a big week for The Postal Service, whose 10th anniversary edition of their sole album, Give Up, was released on Tuesday (4/9). On that same day, the band played their first show of their reunion tour in Reno Nevada. You can watch a few videos from that show, as well as last night's performance (4/10) in Davis, CA, below. You can also watch Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello talking about how the Postal Service came to be in a short documentary and stream the reissue via Spotify below.

After their performances at Coachella 2013's two weekends, The Postal Service's tour will eventually hit NYC at Barclays Center on June 14 (sold out) and June 15 (still tickets). It has since been announced that Mates of State will open night 1 and Ra Ra Riot will open night 2. Both bands open other dates on that tour as well. This comes after Ra Ra Riot's run with The Shins.

Updated Ra Ra Riot tour schedule, streams and videos below...

"Cant wait Im in section 225 Row 29! Woo hoo!"

You might as well just stay home and just listen to the album.

I'm going to the Saturday show - hope they deliver.

Posted by streetdude | April 11, 2013 7:21 PM

This is terrible. I'd rather listen to the album in my car, smoke some weed, then be like "i'm totally there man!"

7:21, you are fucked. Postal Service is gonna stop delivering on Saturdays.

They sound awesome, not that anything in this band is remotely exhausting haha, but really though I'm looking forward to the show.

One of my all time favorite albums. I love every song on it. I'd love a follow up if it can be as good, but not having one would be less of a disappointment than getting one and not liking it.
