Show Review

In the second video of our series profiling Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, band leader Alexander Ebert discusses his band's intentions to communicate and connect with the folks who flock to see show after show. It's a relationship that volleys back and forth between the band and their audience, creating fresh experiences wherever they travel. Cut with a performance of "Fiya Wata" from the band's current album Here, it's another enlightening piece on the band's unique perspective. Also, check out last week's video if you missed it, and the band's full-length performance at WXPN's World Caf Live in Philadelphia.
