Edward Sharpe & Magnetic Zeros bring hippie vibe to Boise concert

There is no Edward Sharpe. But there’s a creative frontman, Alex Ebert, who leads this Los Angeles commune — er, indie band. Ever since the psych-folk group released its joyful breakout single, “Home,” in 2009, it has evolved and uplifted, winning new fans with a loving spirit and nostalgic hippie vibe. Like all good social experiments, though, things have changed in the Magnetic Zeros world. Much-loved female singer Jade Castrinos left in 2014, and now the band — which at one point included more than a dozen members — is all boys.

7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 18, Revolution Center, 4983 Glenwood St., Garden City. $29.50 general ($35 door), $59.50 VIP. Ticketfly. Opening: Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
