Harry and the Potters
Harry and the Potters, the biggest wizard rock band on the PLANET, will be playing at the new Eastern Branch Library for the Grand Opening Party!!! For those of you who are wizard rock fans, I’m sure you just choked on your butterbeer. But some of you may be all “Wizard Rock Wha Who Huh?!?” No worries–we’ve got several weeks to introduce you to the worldwide phenomenon of music based on the world of Harry Potter and turn you into a superfan. Here are three good starters:

1. Here is the teaser trailer for the Wizard Rockumentary (so obviously it gives lots of fun info about Wizard Rock!)

2. MTV NEWS VIDEO: MTV did a news segment on Wizard rock in the summer of 2007 that does a good job showcasing many of the wrock groups, including Harry and the Potters. Sadly, MTV won’t let me embed this video anymore but you can still see it on their site!

3. Read the awesome book Harry, A History: The True Story of a Boy Wizard, His Fans, and Life Inside the Harry Potter Phenomenon by Melissa Anelli. It has a whole awesome chapter on Wizard Rock.

Yea! Yea! Yea! Okay, question: is this nerdy-cool or cool-nerdy? or even something more complicated like geeky-nouveau-punk-magic?

Anyway, so text all your friends about the JULY 10th HARRY AND THE POTTERS show and keep watching this blog as we continue to freak out about how neato this is.
