Bardot is celebrating its first birthday tonight with a special show from Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros.
The LA-based hippie ensemble played a sold-out show last night at Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale, but wasn't scheduled to perform again until October 23 in Missouri. Late Tuesday evening, however, an online flyer on Bardot's homepage (and an ecstatic email from Fernando Perdomo) confirmed a last-minute Miami set.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have toured extensively since releasing Up From Below last November, and their stage show has gained a reputation for being wildly fun. If a sold-out crowd last night was any indication of what to expect tonight at Bardot, we suggest showing up early.
