Tiny Desk Concert: Beirut

(If you can’t see the video above, it’s available on NPR Music.)

Beirut played one of my favorite Tiny Desk Concerts of this year. It was a particularly music-a-riffic day, as The Decemberists had played a set earlier that afternoon, and I was due to see a full concert from Beirut later that night at the Black Cat. (I’m not normally a fan of the muddy acoustics at the Black Cat, but this particular show was really good.) Anyway, enjoy.

(On an unrelated note, looks like the embeddable NPR video player has gotten an upgrade. Sweet. Still requires Flash, but hopefully this is a first step to something that’ll eventually show HTML5 video to non-Flash users.)
