sunday i was lucky enough to see beirut at the independent in san francisco! they played a show at the fox theatre the day before. that theatre seats 2,800 people. the independent holds 500. it sold out immediately and i got a ticket. so did my friend anita. we attempted to get to the bay area early enough to go to the alameda flea market. but we both kind of suck at being on time, and we got there right when everyone was leaving. but we still walked around, and ate donuts. then we got DELICIOUS sandwiches at ike's place in the castro. my first time there. mmm so good. i got the 'sometimes i'm a vegetarian' and it was amazing. so amazing, i even spilled some pesto on my dress. of course.
beirut was also amazing! we were front row center! i took some phone photos that i'll compile into a phone post in a week or so. but seriously. so amazing. i've seen them before, including the last time they played a venue this small and at a festival. but this was incredible.
