written and performed by Beirut (2011)

Santa Fe was hopping the weekend of October 3, 2015 with the performance of Beirut on the plaza. Thank you to Zach Condon and band for playing the home field; we loved it and you! Thank you and congratulations to the Earl Potter and the Five and Dime, Mayor Javier Gonzales and the City of Santa Fe, Santa Fe Audio Visual, Meow Wolf, WAREHOUSE TWENTY-ONE, and the amazing AMP Concerts for making the live concert happen!

Beirut was originally the solo musical project of Santa Fe native (born in Albuquerque) Zach Condon, which later expanded into a band. Beirut’s music combines elements of indie-rock and world music. Interesting tidbit, Zach mentioned during the performance that he used to work at the Haagan Daz ice cream store right off the plaza.

Beirut’s performance in Santa Fe was in celebration of the release of their new album, “No No No” release October 5, 2015.

Santa Fe Lyrics

Your days in one
This day undone
(The kind that breaks under)
All day at once
(For me, for you)
I’m just too young
(And what of my heart)
This day was once
(Silence before)
All grace of lost
Can’t wait at all
(Can’t wait at all)
Temptation won

And what ever comes through the door
I’ll see it face to face
All by your place

Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son
Sign me up Santa Fe
On the cross Santa Fe
And all I want
Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son

And I and I and I alone want you to know
And I and I and I alone
And I and I and I alone want you to know
And I and I and I alone

Your days in one
This day undone
(The kind that breaks under)
All day at once
(For me, for you)
I’m just too young
(And what of my heart)

Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son
Sign me up Santa Fe
On the cross Santa Fe
And all I want
Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son…
