BEIRUT cancels their tour - Hiatus due to Reported Exhaustion

The November 19 Beirut show in Boston has been canceled.
Back-to-back shows in NYC have been canceled as well.

Beirut was to have appeared at the Middle East Downstairs with the Critique of Pure Reason, A Hawk and a Hacksaw and Stars Like Fleas. Beirut's two Bowery Ballroom shows on Nov. 21 and 22 were reportedly sold out. Refunds for advanced tickets are available at the point of purchase.

Very disappointed. Here is the word from the band...

"It is with great regret that we must cancel the upcoming Beirut shows. This was an extremely difficult decision to make, and was only decided on after doing everything we possibly could to make it work out.

This is Beirut’s first-ever tour, and while the band played some of the greatest shows of their lives, the attendant stress of organizing and traveling with a full-blown, 12-person orkestar took its toll. Having put all of his energy into each and every performance, Zach was briefly hospitalized for extreme exhaustion."

Since there will be no Beirut played at the Middle East Club or in Boston anytime soon, here are some songs to listen to:

really like their sound... anything Dostoevskian in their back catalogue that I could use for my playlist?
