The year is 2003. Facebook is in its infancy, you've never heard of an iPod, and your makeout move of choice is to turn on Such Great Heights and gaze deep into her eyes.
It's hard to believe we haven't heard from The Postal Service for a decade, but, fortunately for maker-outers everywhere, they're back. And they're touring.
Your new move: snag tickets to one of two shows at The Greek Theatre on July 26 and 27 and invite the lady of your choice.
Don't expect to hear a bunch of new stuff nobody cares about. They're not actually touring in support of a new record, just the re-release of Give Up, which includes two bonus tracks that were meant to appear on an aborted second album.
The only truly notable addition: Jenny Lewis — who did the female backing vocals on the original album — has come along for the ride.
The result is an evening of unspoiled nostalgia, permeated by the proof that these guys have still got it.
And so do you.
