Retro Pop Done Right: The Postelles @ The Crocodile

I know it was a Tuesday, the beginning of the week and most still hadn’t quite recovered from the weekend’s excesses.  But so many of us missed out on a breakout show by The Postelles, Brooklyn’s gift to catchy tunes.  I suggest you don’t make that mistake next time they cruise through Seattle, because they are well worth seeing and even more worth hearing.

An hour or so of their unique yet classic pop tunes filled the venue, and after a couple of minutes the sounds were joined by people, all enjoying themselves.  They covered Elvis’ “Hound Dog” with great success and when they played their single “White Night” (one of my favorite songs of 2010), there were smiles, both on the stage and in the audience.  It was a great performance and I am glad I’ll be able to claim “I knew of them when…”
