It is the universal language. It unites people. It makes people forgive, forget, heal, rejoice, smile, etc. It’s a part of why I believe the festival culture in America is so coveted now. You name it and music really can be the most powerful thing we have. And I challenge anyone to find a band out there today that better epitomizes spreading joy and happiness than Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Last night in Vegas I had the chance to once again see the band in concert but this was the first time out of a festival setting. What I can tell you is there was not one person in the crowd without a smile on their face. Last night was truly an example of how powerful music can be and put a positive influence on people, even if only for that evening. What Alex Ebert and crew do is a sheer masterpiece. They make the crowd feel as one with the band, radiate positivity and bring a crowd of strangers together. #ThatsWhatsUp.
Add in spending the evening and experiencing the concert with some great friends and there’s not much more that could have made a Thursday night much better.
