Lollapalooza Week - The Postal Service

The fact that The Postal Service have reunited may be old news considering they started this tour in April with a headlining set at Coachella. But, quite frankly, who gives a f#@k? Ten years after the release of their one and only album, Give Up, fans are still selling out shows across the country and finally, Chicago will get their chance to see a great band.

I could write for days about the genius of the album, the myth surrounding their recording process and subsequent, almost obvious choice for a name. However, I won't because the fine people at the creators project have released a short documentary about their history and current tour. The film was lovingly directed by Justin Mitchell, who also was fortunate enough to catch Death Cab for Cutie's rise in another film, Drive Well, Sleep Carefully.

You'll have two chances to catch them this weekend. Their festival performance will be on Saturday, as they close night #2 at the Bud Light Stage. They are also playing a sold out aftershow at the Metro on Sunday. Local radio station WXRT will be broadcasting that show live for those of you that missed out on tickets.
