Indie Fans Are Really Confused About The Twerk Team That Has Been Opening For The Postal Service

“There is literally ass everywhere.”

2. “The distance is awful, but yes, that is a twerk team opening for The Postal Service.”

4. The Postal Service’s Ben Gibbard told The Seattle Times that the odd pairing was deliberate and meant to cause a reaction:


“The incongruous, provocative pairing was deliberate. Postal Service leader and Seattle music luminary Ben Gibbard told me in an interview last week, he chose the opener because, ‘I love Big Freedia’s music and I’m really excited to see how people react to it.’

In the normally neutral space of KeyArena, audience members were irritated, seemed to be uncomfortable with Freedia’s brand of sexual expression and questioned whether the performance was ‘real music.’

Men in the stands conspicuously proclaimed their own heterosexuality, and in general the response was uneasy.”

5. “The Twerk Team - Postal Service style”

7. “There is literally ASS EVERYWHERE. #bigfreedia #postalservice #azzeverywhere #twerk (first time I’ve hashtagged twerk and not been ironic)”

9. “Postal service twerk off?”

11. “Opening for the postal service #twerk”

13. “The most ghetto Postal Service you have ever been to. #twerk #hoodratshit”
