Pulling from a category of hits, The Postal Service delivered a nostalgic performance that rendered us all back in high school; it’s unbelievable to think that a decade has past. When “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight” opened up the Red Rocks performance, I immediately felt like I was stoned in the passenger seat of my friend’s hand-me-down E420; oh the irony. I had forgotten how damn cold it can be under a star-filled sky at Red Rocks but the numbness of your toes, because stupidly you wore sandals, was soon forgotten when songs like “We Will Become Silhouettes”, “Sleeping In”, “Be Still My Heart”, and “Brand New Colony” were brought to life. Lead singer Ben Gibbard was recovering from a lost voice, straining to deliver and though he was probably in pain, he did not want to disappoint. It was a beautiful show that took us all down memory lane. For some it represented so much that had been forgotten but in an instance, you were flooded with memories. Check out more photos HERE!
