Harry and the Potters

For most of us, the Harry Potter phenomenon ended this summer with the release of The Deathly Hallows: Part II. Joe and Paul DeGeorge, however, are still singing about it. The brothers founded wizard-rock band Harry and the Potters in 2002 and have been penning songs with names like “Voldemort Can’t Stop the Rock,” “Save Ginny Weasley From Dean Thomas,” and “Victor Krum’s Missing Arm” ever since. Unsurprisingly, outside of the requisitely nerdy lyrical content, the songs aren’t very interesting on record: poorly recorded rock and power-pop tunes rule the day. But a Harry Potter-inspired rock show just before Halloween? That sounds like as good a way as any to recapture the excitement of those beloved books and movies. ANDREW GOSPE
