Beirut – Demos, Live Stuff, & a Request

Beirut has been an obsession of mine for some time now. Heck, I even went out and bought a ukulele and mandolin in order to try and learn a few songs. But now I have caught the itch for some new Beirut as I await their upcoming EP, which is sure to include some of the songs that they have been playing live. Hoping for the best, and ready for that sophomore slump (does an EP release even really count?) I have been enjoying a few live tracks of new material and a few early demos of songs that didn’t make it onto Gulag.

My only request...does anybody have anything else? I know there are a few other demos out there like “the White Whale,” and that Mr. Condon recorded under the moniker Real People. If anyone has any input or wants to hook a brother up for the public service that he does here on the blog, go ahead and leave a message or send us an email. We’d really appreciate it.

Did I mention I give wicked back rubs?

A fore warning to all you who like to wait till the last minute to get your concert tickets, there are still tickets available for Beirut at the Troubadour. Be there or be square.

I saw Beirut last night in DC. I'm jealous that you guys get to see him the Hawk and a Hacksaw. That's actually how I found out about him - through being a fan of the other band. It was a great performance. It's on my blog!

Ederlezi is originally from the Emir Kusturiza film "Time of the Gypsies", song written by Goran Bregovic. Best version is on Silence of the Balkans, including a nice house beat: http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B000024969/028-9073958-0838951?v=glance&n=290380. Just to those who don't know.
