Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros at the National 

After breaking up with his girlfriend and joining Alcoholics Anonymous, songwriter Alex Ebert spent a year sleeping on a blow-up mattress in a small L.A. apartment working on a story about a man named Edward Sharpe, a Christlike figure sent to Earth to save to the world who was continually distracted by beautiful women and falling in love. Crossing paths with fellow musical artist Jade Castrinos, this magical mystery spiritualism manifested into some great songs, influenced by peacenik psychedelica and George Harrison's Krishna-loving pop. Swelling its instrumental personnel into the double digits, the band debuts “Up from Below,” which features plenty of communal choruses and Summer of Love nostalgia. Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros perform at the National on Saturday, July 17, at 9 p.m. $15-$19. 612-1900. — Mike Hilleary
