Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros



Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros (Liz thinks I should be using is here, and I suspect she's right, but it just doesn't sound as good) are my new favourite band. I've been spending any free time I've had the last couple of days watching Youtube of them perform a pile of different songs... it's pretty awesome stuff. Stuff that I think a lot, maybe all of you are going to enjoy.

I'm not sure this is the kind of group that I'd want to hang out with on a Friday night -- they remind me too much of the McPoyles (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia)... just a strange sort of group. That doesn't mean, however, that I'm not interested in seeing them when they swing by Toronto's El Mocambo on November 24th. In fact, quite the opposite. They seem like the type of band, especially given their size (numbers, not weight of the members), where I wouldn't be surprised by just about anything happening during/at their live show.

Kudos to my buddy Elliot for recommending these guys...

... now this is more like it...
