zach condon Video: Beirut brings East Harlem to Letterman

Beirut made a Friday night appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, where they performed “East Harlem” from their recently released LP, The Rip Tide. Check out the video replay below; if you stay tuned until the end, you’ll also learn the difference between a French and English horn, courtesy of Letterman’s post-performance smalltalk with the band.

Beirut will continue to support The Rip Tide when they embark on their next leg of U.S. tour dates later this month. Their entire upcoming itinerary, which also includes trips to Australia and Japan, is mapped out below.
