Editor’s Note: It was harsh outside, but very casual and calm inside. A winter storm of varied impact rolled into Boston yesterday afternoon (February 12), but the slushy, snowy elements out on Lansdowne Street were no match for what transpired within The House of Blues later that night. Beirut, fresh off the release of this month’s Gallipoli, cruised into town with all the chill of the Italian town that lends its name, Zach Condon leading his veteran indie-folk project through a soft and tight set in front of an attentive crowd. María Alejandra Meta was in the room on behalf of Vanyaland, capturing Beirut’s set as well as the opener, Helado Negro, the stage name and NPR-approved project from Miami-born Roberto Carlos Lange, who releases new album This Is How You Smile on March 8. Check out her full gallery below, starting with images of the opener.
