In collaboration with ‘The Debonairs Lounge’ – a Beirut based blog on classic tailoring and luxury menswear, ‘Salon Beyrouth’ will be staging four visual displays that bring together the art of tailoring and spirits.
The visual displays will reflect, respectively, the powerful style of the Yuppie; the ranch flair of 1950’s Americana; the eternal lightness of the Riviera gentleman; and the draped clothes of the 1940’s elegante.
Wed. 6th December at 8 p.m.

- We are but humble impersonators. Regular people like you. And without you we would be nothing.
- How long have you been Michael ?
- I guess i was born this way.
Standing still. Flushed to assimilate. Not so much to the detriment of other salient contributors. The boundaries tend to be both hazy and and changing over time. In any medium it is neither a prescriptive set of features nor is it a circularly defined body of works, canonized and fixed; instead it's perpetually negotiated. Early on it had at least a couple of tendencies that were to some extent in opposition. Until the collapse. Not much time. We destroy the cities while nocturnal wandering makes us blind. The hierarchy entangles, within and out. The structure falls back, and we’re left bereft of self-affirmation, only to stand still yet again
This is the official LOOPSTACHE Album Pre-Release Party.
Our second studio album is almost done and you should get prepared for a big album launch party this Christmas. But for now, we're organizing a small and intimate gathering at the lovely L'appartement (Sioufi) to spread the news, set the tone and give you a taste of what has been cooking all this time.

There’s no rest for the ravers.
Nope, Marcus Worgull’s parents didn’t have a record collection full of miraculous funk, soul and jazz records. Believe us, they didn’t. Consequently, six-year-old Marcus didn’t place himself on a soapbox to play those non-existing ones to his relatives during family celebrations. I bet you are glad that we clarified that. Instead, Marcus had to go the really hard way. It were the late 80ies and growing up in cosy Wuppertal near Cologne, Germany that meant lots of learning, digging, searching and no perching at all.
Our 5th annual Independence Marathon is taking place at Miziara North-Lebanon.
Departure at 9h30 am sharp from Miziara's square; the trail will follow to CJM club to the ceremony.
This time we are also supporting the Raya Chidiac's case. May her soul rest in peace.
