I love band names. Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros seems like one of those typically ironic band names in large part because, of course, there’s no one in the band named Edward Sharpe.
The opening act, We Are Each Other, sports an infinitely more intriguing band name because, well, apparently we are indeed each other. Or at least the differences between ES&MZ and WAEO are minimal, at least on the surface.
We Are Each Other is essentially singer-songwriter-pianist Aaron Embry, and he kicked off his 35-minute opening set with a solo selection. But he was soon joined by just about the entire membership of the Magnetic Zeros.
