The Postal Service at Verizon Theatre: "This is Love in the Modern Age, Folks"

The Postal Service Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie June 3, 2013

There are a lot of plaid shirts, some seersucker shorts, some totally appropriate Arrested Development tees. There are waxed mustaches and boat shoes and tattoos and highlights.

Trying to find some common markers in the crowd doesn't work. All they have in common is their age. Except for the odd middle-aged couple, everyone here would have graduated high school around roughly 10 years ago. If you ignore the fact that almost no one here knows each other, this could be a giant high school reunion.
