PHOTOS: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros @ Tower Theater, Philly 5/11/12

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros were in the midst of an East Coast tour earlier this month and we were able to send a few folks out to cover the shows as they rolled through the major metros out there. Dana Montanari caught the show in NYC at the Roseland Ballroom and Eric Tsurumoto caught the show a few nights later in Philly at the Tower Theater. Read on for his photo set from the show… –Editor


I have never felt like a artist or even a photographer, I feel more like a person who sees the need to photograph his life. Still Frames can be uniting forces of emotion, and I feel music photography can be almost a bigger voice than the actual arist. My love of music and a DSLR has brought me to some pretty amazing places. In my first year alone I found myself hanging out in a tent next to the Avett brothers, shaking hands with Chromeo and having Win Butlers sweat fly into my eyes while he belts out the opening lyrics to Wake up. But my true goal is not to have a almost famous moment, but to capture what I see in these artists hoping that future viewers can be inspired to listen and fall in love with the artist the same way as I did.
