334 1st Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109
107.7 The End Presents: The Postal Service & Death Cab for Cutie at Climate Pledge Arena on October 6th and 7th, 2023 for their Give Up & Transatlanticism 20th Anniversary Tour!
Combining sensitive songwriting, memorable melodies, and the rich, wistful vocal tone of its leader Ben Gibbard, Seattle's Death Cab for Cutie quickly rose from a low-key solo project to become one of the definitive indie bands of the 2000s and 2010s. Then based in the bayside college town of Bellingham, Washington, Gibbard had a minor breakthrough in 1997 with his debut cassette, You Can Play These Songs with Chords, prompting him to put together a band that included the cassette's producer, Chris Walla. After marrying grungy rock and bittersweet indie pop for nearly a decade, their 2005 major-label debut, the more polished Plans, propelled Death Cab for Cutie into the Top Five behind the Hot 100 single "Soul Meets Body."
Named for the courier service that allowed them to trade song ideas while living in different locales, the Postal Service is a long-distance indie-electronic collaboration between Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard and Dntel's Jimmy Tamborello. Adding to the project's star status is Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis and former Tattle Tale member Jen Wood, both of whom contributed backing vocals on the group's acclaimed, platinum-selling 2003 debut, Give Up.
