no act ranks higher on my wish list, but it just isn't happening.

Yeah, that was in 2004 and it was a pretty good show as I recall.

OP, you might want to check your spelling on Paul's name. :p

Postal Service at Coachella would be sweet.

Probably Ben Gibbard solo and then he will play acoustic versions of some Postal Service songs....that's the most I really expect...and no Zooey guest appearance....for some reason they like to perform separately in musical situations...

It's sad they're not making music together anymore. I know it's not happening, but it would be AWESOME to see them there.

If they ever release a 2nd album, maybe they'll go...

I'd rather see The Postal Service than Death Cab again.

I won't go across the street to see Death Cab, but I'd travel across the country to see Postal Service. I now have blips, beeps, and boops running through my head in a seemingly random fashion. Please GV, make them an offer they can't refuse.

I laughed out loud at Paul "Toilet", and then I didn't read any other messages in this thread.

I'd be so fucking happy. But I know it would never happen :(

They need to be the "get" this year. And none of that weak ass Gibbard acoustic version BS. Dntel and Ben or no go.

fuck yes! an automatic "instantly-buy-a-3-day-pass" artist for me. sadly, i think the closest we can hope for is owl city...

Man, that actually sounds plausible.

Dntel has an upcoming EP and (I think) released an album this year. Please let them play and invite Ben for some Postal Service songs...

Please don't compare the postal service to that god awful band. We're in the same boat with that first sentence though, really hoping for the postal service or jimmy tamborello in any fashion at coachella 2011!

saddest moments of my life are when comments on the postal service's youtube videos say shit like "this band copied owl city" or "this is like a worse version of owl city."

id rather have a dntel set. his new ep on sub pop is ace... he killed low end theory a while ago too.

random. i actually can see this as being a 2020 reunion where they're billed kinda high and everyone is like who the fuck is that? but then a whole generation shows up to see them. in the outdoor. -a la love & rockets

What about Dntel?

Does he ever perform live?

I'm rather late to the party.

jimmy tamborello recently got back together with his old band for a show at the smell. i would love to see them too.

jimmy tamborello said not to expect anything from them, if anything, for at least another few years a few months back. i fail to see why this is being brought up agaain. just let it die. im all for their reunion, but its not happening right now. so, again, LET IT DIE PEACEFULLY.

Yes it would be sweet to see the one guy stand there and twist some knobs while the other guys stands there and sings their one album from 9 years ago.
