Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros announce tour (with Austin Date) + Ticket Giveaway!

Edward Sharp and The Magnetic Zeros by robertcastro.

Everyone has been asking us who the stand out bands were this weekend at Monolith, besides the obvious of course. The one band that instantly comes to mind is Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (Imagine a hippie Arcade Fire?). Beautiful music and fantastic energy they were one of the first bands we saw and they really set the bar high for the rest of the festival. You can see the photos from the show a few posts down or by clicking [here]. Imagine our excitement when we got back and saw the band had announced dates for their upcoming tour. Even better they would be coming into Austin and playing at one of our favorite (and underused) venues The Independent! Check out some video.
