1. Beirut's Paul Collins (bassist) will be DJing official after-parties this tour. So far only one such soiree has been set, with more to be announced. I'm wondering if this will carry over to the US tour dates. Sounds like a good time - I never want to go home after a show! Check out the full details and look out for news at Beirut's official website.

2. A tour poster from The Flying Club Cup and a Scenic World music box with a hefty price tag are on sale now at the Ba Da Bing store. You can also pre-order The Rip Tide LP/CD from the Ba Da Bing store.

3. Zach Condon's Pompeii Records Twitter for Beirut news if you're into Twitter.

Those beautiful, yet imperfect, wrists of a genius.

I fell off a bridge when I was 14, then had surgery when I was 17. Now my left wrist is an inch-and-a-half shorter than my [right one] and doesn't quite have the mobility to wrap around a guitar neck without a bit of pain.

Tadd Gadduang and Ellenore Scott performed a Jazz routine to Beirut's "The Gulag Orkestar" on So You Think You Can Dance this evening. This performance was interesting to say the least. As soon as I heard the song start from another room I ran yelling "Beirut, Beirut!!" Those I watched with believed it sounded like a funeral dirge! To which my reply was I would love to have it performed at my funeral! Check out a video of the performance below.

The Rip Tide will be out next week, August 2, via digital download. However, for those of us waiting for a physical format we won't be able to get our hands on the vinyl until August 30.

Sidenote: Recent Livejournal issues are making news updates really hard to post. *angry stare*

If you've made the conscious decision to wait for The Rip Tide official release in August, there are alternative ways to get a taste of the new album. Here is a lovely video of Beirut performing the new song "Santa Fe" at The NorVa in Norfolk, VA, USA.

I am most amused by the comment "Zach Condon is a Magician".
