In July, one of our favorite bands, The Postal Service, commemorated the ten year anniversary of their first, and only, album by touring. Coincidentally, we celebrate our ten year anniversary this summer too. Of course, we had to see them!
Funny story: about ten years ago, I was raving to Jonathan about the Postal Service. I loved their music, they were so awesome, etc. etc. Meanwhile, Jonathan was like, “no, no, Death Cab for Cutie is so cool! I love their music!” We learn a little about the bands, and, turns out… same guy! The lead singer of the Postal Service, Ben Gibbard, is also lead singer of our other favorite band, Death Cab for Cutie. And what a small world… they’re from our college town! During our college days, Ben and the other band members of Death Cab were recording music just blocks from us! We probably passed them on the streets of Bellingham back in the day and didn’t even know it! We “discovered” these bands right after college, and by then they’d hit it big and were in California doing their thing. Throughout our twenties, and into our thirties, we’ve enjoyed listening to their music and sharing it with our kids.
