Sunday Night Problems

Personally, I'm not a fan of Sundays. When I was a kid the only thing I liked about Sundays was Ghostwriter but I hated the feeling of knowing it was about to be Monday and I still hate that feeling. Not only do we have to deal with that weekly burdon this Sunday but we also have to deal with our feelings about The Postal Service in Cedar Park and our love for Generationals. These are complex emotions y'all.

On the one hand, we always wanted to see The Postal Service perform live but tickets are $50 and that doesn't include $15 to park your car. Not only that, you have to drive to and from Cedar fucking Park. However, it should be noted that both Jenny Lewis and Laura from The Mynabirds are in The Postal Service touring band along with Gibbles and Bits. Also, Ra Ra Riot is opening the Cedar Park show which softens the price of the ticket and the time it takes to get there and back.

Meanwhile, right downtown in Austin's best-sounding small venue, Generationals will be performing their own indie-pop songs. It's Sunday night so parking meters are free and a ticket to see this show at The Parish will only set you back a round of Lone Stars (with tip) aka $10.

When it comes down to it the decision is yours and either choice is a good choice if you ask me.
