Beirut – McDonald Theater – Eugene, OR 10/11/15 (SHOW REVIEW/PHOTOS)

Beirut played a mighty fine show Sunday night to a small McDonald Theater crowd. Front man Zach Condon played multiple instruments and showed a strong singing voice. Despite having a European feel and several songs in French, the band is based in Zach’s hometown of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The current tour follows their recent release No No No and they played several songs from the album including “No No No” and “Gibraltar.” The band’s romantic music transported the audience to a lively cantina filled with samba and jazz. The night also saw a strong performance of “Nantes” from the album Flying Club Cup, which was a highlight for the crowd and band alike.

The McDonald Theater proved to be an ideal setting for this group,  giving them an intimate space to fill with their signature sound and the crowd responded with joy. The small crowd was a blessing, making it easy to navigate the dance floor and grab a drink and getting close to the front was simple. The evening kicked off early with Julia Holter opening the night with her lovely voice.
