Beirut @ ACL Live June 8th

It’s hard to believe, but Zach Cordon (lead singer of Beirut) was only 19 years old when the band released 2006’s Gulag Orkestar. After a four year absence from the Austin scene, the gypsy/indie/folk group will finally play a show this June at Austin’s ACL Live.

Known for playing a mixture of instruments under the stage lights, the band has grown quite the reputation for the ability to combine Eastern European sounds with a dash of indie-pop. This unique sound hints at an old soul yearning to express their love for the culture and people around him. With hit singles such as “Elephant Man”, “Nantes” and “Postcards from Italy” the band has managed to gain quite the following around the globe as well as make a influential dent in the realm of world music.

In what will probably be one of the most mesmerizing shows of the year, Beirut will showcase their multi-instrumental spectacular just at the brink of summer…for Austinites of all music-genre-tastes to witness. If you want a glance at what all the fuss is about, check out Beirut live at the Moody Theater June 8th.
