Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros DMB caravan 1

Alex Ebert is a funny man! For those who don’t know who I am talking about Alex Ebert is Edward Sharpe. It’s not an alter-ego it really is just a name. Alex really wanted a name that would suit the entire band and not just represent him. So how many times do you think he’s been called Edward?

At the beginning of his set he managed to say fuck about 5 times. He then proceeded to say, “I hope all of you brought your kids along.” His entire set was laced with profanity which is just hilarious because he has the most peppy upbeat music. I feel like I should have a lollipop and skip through the fields during his set. Mind you there was lots of space to skip in the giant festival that overtook the old steel mill on the southside of Chicago. It really was a musical love-in that involved lots of drinking and pot smoking.

The band has a new album out called Up From Below. Catch Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros if you can!
