Led by the prodigious, world traveler Zach Condon, Beirut delivers a brilliant amalgamation of influences that literally spans the globe.

When I saw Beirut at this year's Bonnaroo, I was blown away. I wanted to see more in a cooler environment. Well, I'm in luck. Beirut will be bring their unique sound to Turner Hall Ballroom on November 30. The tour is in support of their latest album, "The Rip Tide." 88Nine RadioMilwaukee favorite Valentina sampled Beirut's "Postcards From Italy" for her song "As We Grow." That song became one of most popular that year.
