Edward Sharpe and Magnetic 0’s is allright

it’s hard to stay relevant/care about pop when you’re 30. but when you’re playing to tons or rapid hipsters with edward sharpe holding a megaphone to you. Makes me get the bug. Seth took the first song I did the second fiddle tune which melted everyones mind severely. Here is the tweet plus a short video from the band https://mobile.twitter.com/EdwardSharpe/status/628855508301139968

 


I used to hate on this band and mumford and sons for their lack of virtuosity, but I really see it’s about the ideas behind this band less about the music actually kind of cool, mumford can still break their banjos but there is something philosophically interesting about this Magnetic 0s band. It’s all about hot picking from where I’m standing though.

Jams

This year I am making a point to stop hustling for boring local gigs and jam as much as possible, it’s how I get better playing with a wide variety of musical talent and having to keep up and lead in often non native scenarios. 11258985_649678268502361_25664794_n

So many great jams in this city go to one now!
