Just a few weeks ago we were telling you to check out Edward Sharpe and his band of apparent commune-dwelling, hippie revivalists, but their show at Mercury Lounge sold out in what seemed like five minutes. We're pleased as punch to see they're back, playing the larger Music Hall of Williamsburg for, like, the cost of a gumball or something. You must go see them play "Home" — it's so good, it might make you reconsider the term "hippie."
