Beirut Live!

Beirut is back with a new live album filmed in Brooklyn. I downloaded the audio "Beirut : live a Music Hall of Williamsburg" off of Beirut - Live at Music Hall of Williamsburg but you can also get a dvd version here. I started snooping around www.baeblemusic.com and they have a crap load of good live footage and bands.

Fans of Beirut are really going to like the new album. It starts off with a brand new single "East Harlem". Well it's new to us but Zack explains that he wrote the song when he was seventeen. The rest of the set drifts from "March of the Zapotec/Holland" to classics from the "Gulag Orchestra" and "The Flying Club Cup." It is amazing that such a relatively new artist makes me Nostolgic when I listen to his music. The best is saved for last, when Beirut comes out of no where to play the classic "Brazil". It short and sweet. The set list is lively. What a great find.
