Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes Call for a Sit Down
Fans scaled tress to get a glimpse of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, who played to a jam-packed crowd on Lollapalooza's Sony Bloggie stage Saturday afternoon. The Los Angeles group drew one of the festival's biggest audiences and stunned the crowd with waves of sound propelled by tambourines, horns, accordion, piano and guitars. The performance was already feeling like the weekend's most intimate, but frontman Alex Ebert got even more personal with the fans at the set's conclusion. After asking the audience to sit down -- not an easy feat, considering the lack of space -- he wandered into the audience and performed the song 'Brother.' The scene instantly became the stuff of Lollapalooza legend.
