Glad to get Beirut back for 2012. I didnt see them on the last tour. So this is a nice gift.

A friend of mine saw Beiret at the Greek Theatre and complained he no longer had a string section.

i quite enjoyed the set at the greek, but i haven't seen zack with a string section so i can't compare

I have missed them twice at other festivals. I don't plan on missing them this year. Really hoping they get the sunset slot on the outdoor.

You should plan on seeing them. I would rather watch Beiret play than about 95% of the bands there. A weakass Beiret song is still better than a "Selena Gomez concert highlight."

I still hope Beiret brtings back their old string section, maybe borrows some musicians from a local high school band.

I love Beirut but was severely underwhelmed by the Greek show. Hoping to give them another chance at Coachella.

my buddy just said he seemed like he was mailing in all his performances in australia, which isn't great to hear.

That's exactly how I felt about the Greek performance.

The Greek performance was, what I would call, Comfortable. Never bombastic or over the top, but it never felt like he didn't care or was checked out. It's true that the band has been streamlined which isn't for the better, but maybe he will bring something big for Coachllea. But still, even in a casual mode, Beirut is better than 90% of the other acts on this bill.

I love The Rip Tide. I saw Beirut at Outside Lands and it was definitely beautiful, but we were way in the back on the hill and he/they didn't play much from that album. It had just come out that week and it has since grown to become one of my favorite albums of the last six months or so.

I'm thinking and hoping that their set at Coachella will draw heavily from The Rip Tide. Add Nantes and Postcards From Italy and that'd be a perfect set for me.

I'm guessing the Outdoor. They played opposite Morrissey in 09 - round 8-9 if I remember right.

Didn't they play during the day that year? I know I saw them but I also watched Leonard Cohen which opposed Morrissey.

Anyway.

Out of the 3 fest appearances I've seen it translated the best in the Mojave '09. Keep them in the tent!

So stoked about this. Their 09 show was one of my all-time favorites

Moz played after Leonard Cohen, maybe there was a one song overlap. Beirut was in the mojave (not outdoor) at 8:30. I was at Moz & Cohen so I didn't see them

They are phenomenal live! I saw them at the Greek a couple of months ago. Soooo good. I am excited!

I may get flamed for this, but I always liked how this song sampled 'Scenic World:'

They were fantastic in Portland. Glad I decided against the Greek.

Hopefully they play in the Mojave again(since it's bigger).

I saw them last in Portugal a few years ago, so good!

They were one of my favorites in 2009

Also missed him in 09 due to the Morrissey clash.
Dig him/them but not a massive fan so I'd be happy to just hear Postcards

There isn't enough discussion about these guys. Incredibly excited about this set. I have never seen them live and I have heard nothing but good things.

I saw them at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland over the summer and it was absolutely fantastic.

Can't wait to see them at Coachella/Sasquatch.

I seriously hope you aren't really considering bailing on Coachella this year.

Gribbz
02-16-2012, 10:08 AM
I have tickets to both.

Weren't you talking about being on the fence about Coachella the other day though?

Gribbz
02-16-2012, 10:12 AM
Yeah, but then I realized Sigur Ros usually comes to AZ when they tour. So skipping Coachella wouldn't be necessary.

GuyInTucson
02-16-2012, 10:27 AM
Ahh nice. So, this is an Outdoor Threater at sunset type of set, no?

Gribbz
02-16-2012, 10:38 AM
That would be cool. I would love to see them in the Mojave again too.

I think it's possible since that particular tent is a lot bigger now.

I have not seen them either and am greatly anticipating hearing this:

This version of East Harlem is so much better than the newest one:

Not sure why they changed it.

My lady friend was watching "So You Think You Can Dance" not too long ago and one of the couples used this for their dance.

They were featured on So You Think You Can Dance a few seasons back as well!

Getting really really exicted to see these guys live!

The band of course, not the SYTYCD tour. :P

I saw them at Lollapalooza last year. One of the best shows that weekend.

Why would they stop using strings live? Seems like an integral part of the band
