Mashrou’ Leila and the Night Club’s Political Power

August 2, 2017 New Yorker

Elias Muhanna in The New Yorker, "Mashrou’ Leila, the biggest alt-rock band in the Middle East, was formed in 2008 by several students at the American University of Beirut. The group’s early songs—ironic, grungy jams about the nettlesome oppression of bourgeois Lebanese society—made them famous in Beirut’s indie scene."
