On July 22, 2010, prior to the second of 3 sold out shows in New York, I met Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Alex Ebert was formerly the lead singer of the band Ima Robot and his alter-ego was known as Edward Sharpe. Sharpe was a character from a story that Ebert was writing that was sent to save the earth but kept getting distracted by falling in love. Not knowing that little tidbit until hours too late, I saw Alex on the street and called him “Edward.” Well, luckily for me, this probably is not the first time this has happened, and he responded. He was extremely nice and I am very grateful for our encounter. Thanks Alex and best of luck to you!
