Child is my favorite song from the record, but Man On Fire comes in a pretty close second.

Last week my bestie Andy was in town and gave me the new Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (ESMZ) record. I am a big fan of this record and their first "Up From Bellow". I think every one is familiar with their song "Home". Last summer I had the chance to see them in concert at a park in Salt Lake for FREE! They are incredible live! Alex (pictured above) looked pretty similar to a hobo might look. My friends were upset by that, but I didn't care. He sounded amazing! Since the concert was outside we sat on a blanket on the grass and just listened. I kinda felt like I was at Woodstock, but not really... You know how when your at concerts and it's really crowded and your tired of standing but you still really want to see the concert? And you wish that there was a way for you to sit on a bench that floats above the crowd and right in front of the band? The perfect seat. Well  at the concert there was this tree in the middle of the crowd and a guy climbed up the tree and sat there and had the perfect seat! Alex would point to him and basically serenade this one guy in a tree! I was incredibly jealous.
Here are a few pictures from that concert. 

You can kinda see Alex's crazy hair in this last photo.
