The Postal Service reunion

The Postal Service launched their reunion tour in Reno, Nevada last night, marking Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello’s first performance together since 2004. Joined on stage by Jenny Lewis and Laura Burhenn (Mynabirds), the band performed a catalog-spanning set, which included “Turn Around” and “A Tattered Line of String” from their scrapped sophomore album. Below, watch fan footage of “We Will Become Silhouettes” (via Pitchfork), “Clark Gable”, and “Such Great Heights”.

Here’s the full setlist from last night, along with the remainder of the band’s upcoming tour schedule (they’ve since announced Ra Ra Riot, Mates of State, and Big Freedia as openers for their summer tour dates.)
