The Postal Service Reach Greater Heights, The National Stuns Crowd – Lolla Day 2 in Photos

 

The Postal Service

Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard’s electro side project earned the hearts of hipsters back in 2003. The debut album “Give Up” by The Postal Service became an instant classic that left fans begging for more.

During the band’s headlining set at Lolla Saturday night, fans reveled in the chance to see this band for the first time in a decade. They delivered… ahem… an incredible set.

 

 

The National

The National absolutely blew me away. I had written them off as a humdrum band but live they were anything but boring. It was a symphony of indie rock complete with a horn section in addition to the guitar-bass-drums. Astonishing. And eye-opening. I think you guys have a new fan.

 

Matt And Kim

Matt And Kim’s usual antics were on full display earlier that afternoon as the duo played covers of Salt N Pepa’s “Push It” as well as DJ Kool’s “Let Me Clear My Throat” in addition to their own hits “Daylight” and “Lessons Learned.”

Matt + Kim = Happiness And Cheer

 

Matt and Kim on the big screen. See the them playing in the darkness below.
 

Matt and Kim have more fun on stage than any band in recent memory. And for the crowd, the feeling is mutual.  Not even the Flaming Lips or Polyphonic Spree hold a candle to the band’s spunk, energy and overall optimism.

The Brooklyn duo of Matt on keyboards and Kim on drums absolutely oozes happiness and that translates into an exciting, exhilarating, explosive live show. It’s a simple idea, but it works.

The audience was ecstatic every time the band burst into a song new or old. They bounced along to the music, not quite moshing, but kind of close. Call it a happy mosh pit.

This was the band’s biggest-in-size show of the tour, playing in a venue that holds 3,500 people.

New Video: Matt And Kim “Let’s Go”

 

 

Matt And Kim’s 4th album “Lightning” is one of this season’s best albums. The duo’s brand-spankin-new video for “Let’s Go” premiered today exclusively on Funny Or Die. And it’s cheese-tastic.

The clever concept: Matt and Kim invade a K-Mart-style photo studio and rock some goofy poses while wearing ticky-tacky clothing.

Someone dug deep in the thrift store racks and found some awesome retro gems. Think Cosby sweaters, animal apparel, aprés-ski gear and more. It’s super geeky and brilliant. See for yourself.
