Beirut Performs “Nantes” On the Street: Video

4 03 2009

If you haven’t heard of the band Beirut, you should–perhaps solely for one youtube video.

In this video, Beirut vocalist Zach Condon initiates a jam session in the middle of the street, using garbage cans as percussion.

The video highlights, in my opinion, Beirut’s laidback, eager to please band personality, and it’s a lot of fun to hear Condon’s unique voice. I wish I was one of the people on the street!

Condon, right.

Condon, right.
