WTF: Beirut On ‘So You Think You Can Dance” (And Lia Ices Too!)

    There was a huge holy shit indie culture breakthrough type thing on So You Think You Can Dance last night: During two of the contestants’ dance routine, they danced to Beirut’s “The Gulag Orkestar.” That’s right, Balkan brass-ified heartfelt indie rock is now suitable for shows about dancing on the FOX network. We’ve won?

     

    But that’s not all: Lia Ices’ “Grown Unknown” was used as music during the opening of the show too. No joke. Both videos are below. We did it, I guess. [P4K
