Yesterday at Sydney’s second Big Day Out, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros provided the crowd with an inspirited love-in of uproarious singalong moments, chemically unaltered group hugs and ear-to-ear smiles. The band opened with “Janglin” and lead singer Alex Ebert spared no time in getting to know the crowd intimately, quickly jumping off the stage onto the crowd barricade and into the welcoming arms of the front row punters. Watch in the footage below as Ebert takes the purse from the hand of one Edward Sharpe enthusiast. Sarah Day of Albion Park High School your mother wants to know why you weren’t at school yesterday young lady.

(Also note the security guard at the end of the footage who is basically the personification of ‘jolly’.)
