Today's Brew | Beirut @ Troubadour

On Saturday, Beirut played a sold out show at the Troubadour (LA). Their first Southern California appearance, at least to my knowledge. As the band was setting up, they layed out all their instruments, as if a chef was preparing to assemble a masterpiece dish. The band opened the set up with the first track off their album with "The Gulag Orkestar", but the place went wild with the crowd favorite, "Postcards from Italy" which was played at the midpoint of the set.
The band came back to do two encores with the first encore being performed within the audience as they stepped down to the main floor.
Definitely a band to check out live, if you haven't done so yet.

My previous entry about Beirut ovah here.

The new EP, Lon Gisland, will be available though Chouette on
vinyl in November.

Go over to Passion of the Weiss for a more descriptive account of the show. He also offers up the new song "Elephant Gun" that was played that night.
And over to Cowbell Junkie for her video clip of the song "Elephant Gun".

Glad you liked the show would've been tough not to...everyone I came with was pretty blown sorta' gave the album more resonance for me...even though i'd already liked it before, it went up a few notches. That kid is the real deal alright. I think I spent most of my 20th year beer-bonging and regular bonging. At 20 Zach Condon rocks crowds across the country. With a ukelele no less. He's pretty cool in my book
