Just like Jesus Christ (and John Lennon) transcended to martyrdom through their conviction of love, Alexander Ebert descended the stage at the Music Hall of Williamsburg as an offering of unconditional love to eager fans and spectators. Better known as the front man for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Alexander is the solo project of Ebert whose self-titled album was released on March 1, 2011. Although the album was written, recorded, and performed solely  by Ebert, an entourage of family, friends, musicians, and bohemians, including the infamous Jade Castrinos, accompanied him on stage for a modest tour that included only a handful of east coast dates.

Whether you believe Ebert to be a “Saint” or just a squalid hippie, one should not underestimate the power of Alexander as the album ventures through epic human experiences of love, loss, soaring highs and detrimental lows all in one sweeping, seamless motion. There are no prospective tour dates in sight so chances are if you missed it, you missed it.

However, there is good news for the fans in the audience who were requesting Edward Sharpe covers throughout Alexander’s set; Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros have announced a slew of tour dates that are accessible on their MySpace page.
