1. The Postal Service (the U.S. Postal Service, not the band) has now backed off on its proposal/threat to cut Saturday mail delivery.
2. The Postal Service (the band, not the U.S. Postal Service) yesterday released the 10th anniversary remaster/remix/reissue/whatever of its album Give Up. Which makes me happy. Because I am old.
3. The Postal Service (the tour, not the band, not the U.S. Postal Service) doesn't look like it's coming to Jazz Fest. There was a big hole in the schedule between April 20 and May 18, right during Jazz Fest, and since the tour is stopping at a bunch of festivals, I held out hope that Quint Davis would be springing this as a surprise. But no.
4. Big Freedia (not the tour, not the band, not the U.S. Postal Service) will be opening for The Postal Service for three shows in July — in Vancouver, B.C., Portland, Ore. and Berkeley, Calif. So why not bring the tour here?
Here is one of the bonus tracks from the reissue of Give Up, "A Tattered Line of String."

This looks great.
