2013 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival - Weekend 2 - Day 2

When Death Cab For Cutie announced a handful of tour dates with Jenny Lewis, fans had their fingers crossed that the pair would bust out some Postal Service songs. Lucky for them, they were right.

Though without Jimmy Tamborello, the third member of the iconic yet short-lived indie-electro project, Lewis and DCFC frontman Ben Gibbard staged a reunion of sorts when they incorporated the track "Nothing Better," off The Postal Service's one and only album, 2003's Give Up, into their set list. The two former bandmates look so happy to be performing together that we can only hope a full-fledged reunion could be in the future. (They did reunite briefly in 2013, though it only lasted a summer.) DCFC documented the reunion on Twitter. Check out the video below.
