Concert Review: Beirut gets a taste of L.A.

Brenna von den Benken Arts Editor The repulsive smell of a blunt being passed around by four people sitting in front of me on the north terrace didn’t put a damper on the circus-like performance that was delivered by Beirut.

Now I am in my 20s and along with my age, my music taste has grown beyond just simple...
