So much more than an album…

Quick: what has music done for you? Beyond the pick me up, the shuffling and breaking in the kitchen, and background noise as you knock out life, it creates memories, experiences you shall never forget.

With anything in life, you can’t sleep. You want it, get after it. You hesitate, become lazy, that shit just got up and bounced. This happened a decade ago —almost exactly — when The Postal Service rolled into Chicago and tickets were snatched up before I could secure them. If your collection was like mine, Give Up was a monumental release. In the least, it hit right. Bleeps, blips, and beats under Ben Gibbard’s warm, soothing voice.

Since sleeping twice is unacceptable, their visit to Red Rocks becomes an essential experience. No doubt they’ll rouse up the crowd and cause me to regret their Abbey Pub gig. But, it’s the domino effect that this act really initiates: the kickoff event to a weekend where 2/3 of the original MiS crew is in tow. Set it off…
