So while the Black Lips were busy puking on stage, marching and whatnot....

Beirut @ Coco66

Beirut played a free secret show at Coco 66 in Greenpoint last night and completely wrecked the place! They played a drunken 1 1/2 hour set (including one “pee break”) of new and old songs to prepare for their three upcoming NYC shows. You can catch them tonight (9/20) at The Brooklyn Masonic Temple in Fort Greene. More photos of the show can be found here. [Obscene NYC]

Beirut's new album The Flying Cup Club is officially released on 4AD on October 9th, 2007. La Blogoteque recently took a trip from France to Brooklyn to tape a take-away-show-style video for every song on that album, and so far four of them are available for your listening and viewing pleasure.
