BMI's May Pick of the Month

LOS ANGELES, May 5, 2009 – U.S. performing right organization Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) will present Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros at the May edition of its Pick of the Month series. The performance is slated for Thursday, May 14 at The Regent Theatre (448 S. Main St. Los Angeles, CA); ages 21 and older are encouraged to attend, doors open at 7:00 p.m., and tickets are $5 at the door. Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros will hit the stage at 10:30 p.m.

With wide-eyed sincerity, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros layer feel-good folk over grandiose retro-pop melodies. Carried by the charisma of front man Edward Sharpe—the stage name of Alex Ebert—the troupe’s sing-a-longs have garnered praise from NPR thanks to brilliant bows at SXSW, while tastemaker Kevin Bronson has proclaimed that listeners will find it “impossible not to come back for more.”
