Harry and the Potters cast a wizard rock spell on the downtown library this week


  • Kim Newmoney
They're not the Weird Sisters, but wizard band Harry and the Potters are more than enough when it comes to warlock rock. Brothers Joe and Paul DeGeorge have been delivering Hogwarts-themed jams in libraries, rock clubs, basements, bookstores and other low-key locales since 2002. Some of their hits include "Save Ginny Weasley," "Phoenix Tears" and "The Economics of the Wizarding World," the last song being a look into the occasionally nonsensical magical economy of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Get to the Orange County Library System's website to RSVP for the concert, or you may end up like Neville Longbottom and miss out on all the fun. You may not be able to bring a lighter to this show, but your trusty wand should do just fine. Lumos!
