That's a flugelhorn he is holding there. There are two people Zachary Francis Condon remind me of, one Jeff Mangum for his vaudevillian antics and style. Two, Paul McCartney for his hair and head swagger on stage... now if it is true you can combine those two individuals into one person and they can make music today... wouldn't that be something worth listening too?
The more and more I listen to Beirut the more and more I fall in love with it. And to think Zach is only 22. I'm almost disappointed to see Beirut on Letterman, but in guess it is the way of things and truly this is a brilliant musician that should have all the recognition of the world.
