Hundreds of music lovers shrugged off the tense security situation in Lebanon Saturday, flocking to Downtown Beirut to enjoy the dozens of live concerts organized by the French Cultural Institute as part of the annual Fete de la Musique.Close to 50 performances spread across six Downtown stages took place Saturday, attended by crowds that shifted from one spot to another as the night drew on.Several hundred fans gathered in front of the stage in Martyrs' Square to watch a performance by local group Pindoll, and the crowd swelled in the lead-up to a much-anticipated appearance by blues-rock duo The Wanton Bishops, who came on half an hour later than scheduled, at around 11p.m.While other events, including the Live Achrafieh Music and Street Festival, were canceled in light of the security situation, most festivalgoers seemed dismissive the threats.
