Beirut

The Red Hot Organization and Entertainment One Music established a new partnership to produce Red Hot + Rio 2 out June 28, 2011. Red Hot + Rio 2 is a modern tribute to the late 60's Brazilian Tropicália movement. The album will shed new light on the songs of this influential, politically charged era, which changed the culture of the country forever. Red Hot + Rio 2 is the latest entry in the series of tribute albums produced by the Red Hot Organization to raise money for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.

The compilation features 33 original collaborations between Brazil's legendary musicians and today's international indie artists including John Legend, Os Mutantes, Devendra Banhart, Caetano Veloso, Seu Jorge, Beck, Bebel Gilberto, José González, Beirut, Tom Zé, Javelin, of Montreal, Marisa Monte, Eugene Hütz (from Gogol Bordello), DJ Dolores, Aloe Blacc, Angelique Kidjo, Rita Lee, Madlib, Money Mark, Céu, Apollo Nove, Mayra Andrade, Trio Mocotó, Tha Boogie, Alice Smith, Carlinhos Brown, Los Van Van, Brazilian Girls, Marcos Valle, Forró In The Dark, Mia Doi Todd, Phenomenonal Handclap Band, N.A.S,A, Moreno Veloso, Otto, Superhuman Happiness, Cults and many more.

Download Beirut's contribution to the disc, a cover of Caetano Veloso's "O Leãozinho," above. The full 2-CD tracklist and cover art is below.

Beirut's upcoming shows include Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, and a Northside Festival show in McCarren Park with Sharon Van Etten. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are still in this post.

Beirut headlined a sold out show at NJ's Wellmont Theater on Friday night with Lady Lamb the Beekeeper. Pictures from the headliner's set (but not the opener's due to traffic getting to the venue) are in this post. They continue below...

Happy to have them back in action. Now ... they're no Taraf de Haïdouks, but a might fine knockoff for the Billyburger crowd.

WWTT?

what

think?

11:24, "Taraf de Haidouks" knockoff? How do you figure? There's not one person in Beirut that plays the violin. Taraf de Haidouks has about 8 dudes playing violin and two of them pretending to play. Kinda like four dudes helping to move in a couch and that one dude barely lifting on his end.

beirut always struck me as too pretentious, and the crowd was much too stiff. the show, however, surprisingly good. 2 trumpets, a trombone and an accordion can hit some powerful moments. the occasional ukulele real mellow as well.

I never understand why people listen to Beirut, but not any other (original) Balkan music. Is it because Pitchfork only covers them?

Dear 11:38,

When I've seen Beirut play live, Heather Trost has played violin with them. She's the violinist, along with Beirut drummer, in A Hawk and a Hacksaw. And now that I've taken you to school, class is dismissed. Chump.

the new stuff sounds pretty good.

Bingo, 11:59.

12:27. Not so fast. And which Beirut recorded tracks feature a violin? I'm just trying to understand the comparison since they are a huge "knockoff". School back in session.

Weclic is a great way to discover new and interesting places to go out and do things you have always wanted to do but haven´t.

To the people trying to understand the "violin' issue.

You have much larger problems. You should be wondering why you are discussing the "Beirut" issue.

Please go meet at Spike Hill, discuss this over a PBR, and stop wasting space on BV.

I WAS THERE1!!!!! yay....

7:13a. Yeah. How odd to be discussing a Beirut issue on a
posting about Beirut.

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2011 9:05 AM

No one has played violin with the band since he changed the lineup in like 2008.

Beirut played a benefit for PBR with free Billyburgers for everyone in attendance at Coco 66 and had eight violinists last year. I actually got a shirt that says I ATE MY BILLYBURGER AT BEIRUT.

Now go stand in the corner, bitch. You've got detention.

Where are these mysterious recordings?

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2011 10:21 AM

first and only time i will go to Wellmont - sound was loud and the crowd was extremely rude - if you want to talk all night, go to a bar
aside from that, the show was really good

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2011 11:31 AM

^Dude you need to get there earlier and stand away from the bar levels. Go to the lowest level on the floor or balcony then problem is solved.

People talk at shows in New Jersey? Shocking! I'm glad that never happens here!

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2011 11:57 AM

When I saw them play at BAM the crowd was extremely polite and
genteel.

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2011 12:06 PM

By genteel you mean everybody was sleeping in their seats?
