ALSO I LIKE TO ROCK: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros & Eskimo Hunter

Friday Jul 24, 2009 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

“The tribal psych-folk of Then and the dance-worthy pop of Now collide in the music of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, a 10-strong (or more) collective fronted by Alex Ebert (Ima Robot). Horns, accordions, strings, tambourines, myriad other percussion and big harmonies add up to an infectious euphoria.” —Buzzbands

Eskimo Hunter

Weaving layered melodies with rhythm and sounds, Eskimo Hunter crafts a unique brand of music by combining the stacked harmonies of the Beach Boys, the symphonic electronics of ELO, and the shoegazer fuzz of My Bloody Valentine and Spiritualized.


Also I Like to Rock

Rock returns to the Hammer courtyard this July for a series of free concerts hand-picked by online radio powerhouse Indie. Each night features back-to-back sets by some of today’s best breakthrough bands. Galleries open until 9pm.
