Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall


Beirut is an American band which was originally the solo musical project of Santa Fe native Zachary Francis Condon, and later expanded into a band. The band's first performances were in New York, in May 2006, to support the release of their debut album, Gulag Orkestar. Beirut's music combines elements of indie-rock and world music. New album Gallipoli is set for release in February 2019.

Beirut has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket will go to support Buffalo String Works, a community-based nonprofit organization that fosters hope and compassion through high-quality music instruction for refugee children arriving from nations including Syria, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Thailand, Sudan, and Somalia.

Helado Negro opens the show.

Helado Negro is the music and performance alias of Roberto Carlos Lange. A project circling Sun Ra type cosmic poetry, using abstract ideas embedded with political messages to all good humans of the earth. The compositions are made in the contemporary sense with computers, voice and field recordings. Performance wise he acts like a electrified Abner Jay, being a one man band, shouting, moving and setting up his surreal performance with his Tinsel Mammals and slow orbit sways. The music is sung in english and spanish, a product of his upbringing in South Florida and embedded with his parents Ecuadorian culture of boleros, baladas and carribean dance music. The music is the wind down and possibly the wind up, the in between before the realization of what will happen. His album Private Energy 2016, was given an 8.1 on Pitchfork and his song “It’s My Brown Skin” was honored as “best New Track”.
