Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros announce tour dates

edward sharpe

A lot of people give Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros an unfair rap. The 11-piece band drives around in a converted school bus and plays music like it’s 1969 all over again. It has all the cult-aspects of The Polyphonic Spree with a more folksy feel. Is that so wrong? I guess I can understand people eschewing the band’s recorded material, but live?? I haven’t read any concert reviews, but I feel like this would be a lot of fun. Especially if it was in a big field or clearing in the woods or something. I mean, it’s not, but wouldn’t that be great? Their first full-length recording, Up From Below is out now on Rough Trade, so go check it out, hmm?
