    Default Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

    Went to their set today and the Outdoor and really had a blast. The band was into and looked to be having a good time all the way around. Good tunes, and people all around just relaxing and getting into it. Probably my favorite set of the day. What'd you guys think?

    Looked good from the webcast, and saw a lot of kroqken in the audience during Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros set.

    I just noticed my original post is a little all over the place. Please excuse the Ambien.

    these are gonna break soon. they are gonna be huge.

    i saw them in a venue of 300 people, a few weeks after their letterman performance, and their command of the audience, their whole vibe and aura, and their musicianship was special. i go to shows all the time, and ES and the MZ were the band that has stuck out in terms of a little indie band that seems like it will hit the big time. at one point at this show, not at coachella, but at the show i saw, they had everyone in the audience sit down and everyone obeyed. i get a devendra vibe off the band. they seem almost manson familyesque.

    You have to admit that Jade is super cute even if she hasn't bathed in a week.

    I liked them better the first time around when they were called Arcade Fire

    while i agree arcade fire is mindblowing, i find no similarity. Edward Sharpe is a bunch of hippies, as opposed to hipsters. they have a vibe of being from a different era. and they make music similar to devendra. i dont understand the comparison to arcade fire. You really think Home, and Wake Up sound similar?

    Exactly, don't get me wrong, they were good, but I don't see much staying power. Arcade Fires set in 05 was UNREAL, probably top 5 all-time Coachella sets.

    I dunno about that. Did you hear the song third from the end, that Jade sang lead? Either that was a killer Steve Miller Band cover and an ever-more brilliant new song.

    Felt their band was on but the sound was a bit low for all the instruments being used in harmony and the lyrics are very audience participation based, so when the singer is tripping balls on stage, they don't deliver as solid as I've seen them before @ the Mayan downtown.

    I love their album, but that day they sounded all over the place. Ed seemed visibly fucked up, the rest of his band had to cover for him. Not impressed

    "Home" was one of my favorite songs of the whole festival. Such a great vibe sent out from them, just makes me want to take off my shoes and dance my ass off.

    Edit: Listening to Janglin' right now and yeah, that was one of my favorite songs of the festival too. So fun

    i feel the same about every word in this statement. was really looking forward to them too but then i realized the second that the band came out and he rushed to some random dude and put a shirt around his head that we were in for a not bueno show cuz he was in some other galaxy and didnt know the words and when to sing.

    I thought their set was terrific; they were easily my favorite act of the day (along with Devo).

    My favorite set of Saturday. 40 Day Dream was pure happy bliss there on the polo fields.

    I think there was magic in the music, but Alexander will be the demise of the group. He is so narcassistic and you can see it flowing off of the stage. During the second song, Jade sat in the corner and didn't want to move. Alexander kept jumping off the stage and it seemed like they didn't have a set list prepared. Jade did not want to sing "Home". I wouldn't want to sing that song to an ex-boyfriend either. I really enjoyed the music, I just pray they get back on the right track. Oh also, Jade has an incredible voice. She sang lead on a song and she just radiated warmth and beauty with those beautiful notes flowing from her smiling face.

    They were fun. It was a big surprise to me when I realized they're the band who does that "Home" song. I'd forgotten who it was!

    I was in the crowd waiting for it to start when my buddy passed out and ate shit, so we had to leave the crowd and attend to him. Biggest misfortune this year at coachella was missing these guys play live from a good position, but still had a pretty good earshot while keeping my buddy talking and awake.

    He put his shirt on that guys head because he accidentally busted it open with the microphone stand right when he walked out. It wasn't just some random fucking guy that he decided to take his shirt off and wrap it around his head.

    When did Home come in the set? Towards the end?

    I left after the first three songs to see Tokyo Police Club, one of my favorite bands, and now it feels like I made a mistake. Hindsight, I guess.
