Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes @ Abbott Kinney Festival – 3 video clips

I was excited that the annual local street festival on Abbott Kinney had a bona fide “next big thing” playing on one of the stages – Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes.  After a summer of hearing them on KCRW and hearing a good thing here or there about their live act, you couldn’t really beat a free taste.  And they didn’t disappoint.  Now it seems to me they have only 4 or so super solid songs, but when you have the ramshackle large-group-revival vibe going with an energetic and charismatic front man, it really doesn’t matter.  Whether the rest of the country will catch the fever (or fervor?) that was already evident in half of the crowd here remains to be seen, but looks like there is an extensive fall tour.  Personally, I think they’d be perfect for a nice afternoon set on the Outdoor Stage at next year’s Coachella.

3 clips in HD below.  My Canon didn’t handle the sound quite as well as it did at Bon Iver (which really had an almost immaculate sound setup, helped by the fact everyone was quiet and sitting down) but still not bad…
