The Postal Service - Comerica Theatre - 4/18/13

The Postal Service's reunion is still fresh. The band played its first live show on April 9, the day the Give Up reissue was released in honor of The Postal Service's 10-year anniversary.

The reunion news was sudden and raised some questions. First and foremost, would the reunited Postal Service be any good? Since the Postal Service split, Ben Gibbard has been busy with Death Cab for Cutie, and Jenny Lewis has been wrapped up with her solo work. Would the duo have any chemistry? Dating a bandmate is always awkward.

The short answers: Yes, it was good and, no, it wasn't awkward.
