Indeed those that pupate in a cocoon must eventually escape from it. It appears that Zach Condon is ready to emerge from his winter hiatus. March will bring Beirut to Austin for a 4AD SXSW showcase and an Austin City Limits performance hosted by Seattle's KEXP. Beirut has also just announced two Bowery Ballroom shows on May 6th and 7th. No telling what's next.
