Request: Beirut t-shirt at their Olympia Gig

My favourite band of 2006 – Beirut are the support band for Calexico in the Olympia this Thursday. After spending almost half a day contemplating canceling my NY trip just to see them, I decided not to. If, however, some kind soul is going to this, I wonder could you pick me up a t-shirt (large) from the band and I will repay you once I get back to Ireland? It should be a really good gig. If there are tickets left I’d recommend going to this gig.

This is Beirut live in Moscow:

    I read about them in something over the weekend (was it Friday’s Irish Times or the (London) Independent?) and my interest was piqued. If I go, I’ll buy for you.

    I’m with you, it’s one of the best albums of the year. How does one guy manage to sound like an entire gypsy orchestra?

    Wait a minute – are you missing the Sufjan gig on Wednesday?!

  4. Damien says:

    Yes it’s bloody tragic! I book New York and then later Beirut are announced and then Sufjan. Grrr.

    Arragh, take it as a measure of your impact: you have irritated the gods so much that they are now striking back

    One t-shirt in a drawer at work. Let us know when you return so I can arrange transfer of said t-short to you. (PS: Great gig, thanks for tipping my indecision in the right direction.)
