Beirut Concert Review
Beirut doesn’t make a lot of sense in today’s indie scene. They don’t fit into the electronic synth style pop music or the acoustic melancholy music or even the refined garage band punk. In fact, when I tried to think of bands that Beirut reminded me of, I was stumped. I could only think of a region that Beirut made me think of, and that was Eastern Europe. Still, despite the fact that of all the random instruments Beirut mixes into their music, neither an electric nor an acoustic makes the lineup, Beirut has found their own niche in today’s music scene. Wednesday night’s concert at the Fillmore in downtown Denver was evidence of exactly that.
