Nitefall on the River

If you haven’t been to an Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros concert, I highly encourage you to not miss your chance this Wednesday.  The band last played in Des Moines in 2011 for the 80/35 Festival.  During the festival, they showed amazing chemistry and cohesiveness for a band of their size.


Since forming their full band in 2007, Edward Sharpe has been playing to sold-out shows in the U.S. and abroad and will release their third album next month.  While their music has an indie-folk-rock vibe, I like to sum up their music as pure love.  Few bands spark as much positivity on stage and in their crowds.


Please note, more tickets have been released for this concert, as it has been moved to the Walnut Street Bridge, due to Simon Estes Amphitheater’s flooding.




Doors open at 6:30 PM, show starts at 7:30 PM

Tickets $25, Ages 10 and under free with adult
