Beirut - "In the Mausoleum" from The Flying Club Cup

Instead of playing in someone's apartment (as seen above) they're going to play at your favorite record store (as you will see tonight at 6:30pm).

Called a variety of things from Blogrock (because sites such as Stereogum and Pitchfork "discovered" them before the MSM did) to "the poor man's Arcade Fire" (because clearly any band that has the audacity to have a violinist, interesting music, and an accordion are clearly ripping off the Canadians you love to love).

Beirut do their own thing. They just came out with a new record on Tuesday called, The Flying Club Cup, and if you like hearing good bands in great record stores play for free, tonight's the night, as Neil Young says.
