Beirut were one of the largest surprise hits of 2006 receiving widespread acclaim for its innovative combination of Balkan and pop melodies. Even more surprising was that it was the work of one 19-year-old kid, Zach Condon, and done almost completely in his bedroom with Pro Tools. This autumn Beirut return to the Roundhouse following the release of their new album The Flying Club Cup- a notable shift in sound from Gulag. Their live set is a glorious sweep of music, striking in its emotional content and stunning in its scope.
