Smart Bets: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

It's a long name for a band — Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros — and there's no Ed Sharpe involved. Instead, the group (a big lineup, with an even bigger, foot-stomping, mood-elevating folk-rock sound) came from the chance meeting of Alex Ebert (of Ima Robot) and Jade Castrinos. They're on tour in support of sophomore release, Here (with the haunting/catchy song “Man On Fire”), while also working an album due out early next year. The band performs at Thomas Wolfe Auditorium on Thursday, Sept. 27. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah opens. 8 p.m., $40 (includes fees). ticketmaster.com or buy at the box office.
