Do you feel strongly about getting people registered to vote? Well, here’s something you might want to help out with:
The HP Alliance is looking for 2 volunteers at every wizard rock concert across the country for Wizard Rock the Vote. As a volunteer, the bands will provide you with a clipboard and registration forms to sign people up to vote for the November election.
If you are interested in being one of these awesome volunteers please use the [form] or send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t believe us that the library is a place to ROCK?! Here is a teensy taste of the sounds that will be erupting from the Eastern Branch Library on July 10th at 2 pm:
P.S. The awesome movie they are advertising is We Are Wizards–a documentary directed by Josh Koury about Harry Potter fans that features Harry and the Potters, Melissa Anelli, Brad Neely (the creator of Wizard People, Dear Reader) and lots of others (including a sixteen year old girl who organized a successful boycott against Warner Brothers when they tried to shut down HP fansites!). And guess what?! You can watch it for free online thanks to Hulu!
sooo remember how SUPER excited I am that Harry and the Potters will be playing at 2 pm for the Eastern Branch Library Grand Opening on July 10, 2010? Well that performance won’t be the DeGeorge Brothers’ first visit to the QCA–nope, they popped into the Horseshack Studio for a Daytrotter session back in 2006!
Don’t know what Daytrotter is? It is a crazy-heroic website where you can read interviews, see cool illustrated portraits, and download lots of great live recordings for free! Basically some cool people got together and set up a studio in Rock Island where Musicians could stop at for a few hours while touring and record whatever. neato.
