Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

After dinner last night, we grabbed a cab and headed down to the Bowery Ballroom.  One of my favorite venues.  We got there around 11 just as Edward Shape and the Magnetic Zeroes were coming on.  The good news is, we know the trick to get to the front of the stage.  Sorry, can't share. 

An 11 person band.  One person is more talented than the other.  All great voices.  They put on an incredible concert and one you can only appreciate in a small venue as it is lost in anything larger. 

We knew a bunch of people at the show which is always fun to discuss afterward.  If you get a chance to see them, run now because my guess is after the 2 lead singers stop sleeping together, that will be the demise of the group.  Also, the song Home just won't be the same.

    You’re last paragraph is very perceptive. I noticed the energy level last night was quite different from the clips of shows I’ve seen online. I asked a friend, who is close with the band members, and me noted that Alex and Jade are split and she’s now with the piano player. If true, you can imagine the drama unfolding in the tour bus and the impact its having on the live performance.Still a great show and wonderful night for me in NYC. Fred was terrific for grabbing me a ticket and it was a pleasure meeting you briefly at the show.

      is that why during home Jade just talked about taking her shoes off and not mentioning anything about the first time they saw each other as they normally do?… will have to review the video. unfortunately its not worth the upload since the audio quality was extremely poor. however I uploaded some to flickr as an attempt to share a taste of the showhttp://www.flickr.com/photo…good seeing you both
