A few months ago, while browsing the impressive collection of music CDs at the library, I came across an indie-looking album that struck my eye. The band’s name: Harry and the Potters. SOLD. I excitedly popped the CD in for the drive home. It was pretty much as expected: lackluster indie rock redeemed by humorous, well-researched lyrics. I enjoyed the album, but not enough to rip it to my computer, and so, in a matter of 2 weeks, Harry and the Potters came into and out of my life.
Fast forward to about a week ago. Family friend and AbsolutelyAndrew Endorsed Blogger, Kara announced on Facebook that a band called Harry and the Potters would be playing a free show at the library. The name sounded familiar, so I looked it up and realized it was in fact the same band I had discovered months earlier. I needed no convincing. We were going.
The show was pretty much incredible. Evidently Harry and the Potters has quite the cult following, comprised mostly of high school students with a few 20 and 30 somethings. These people were just as entertaining to watch as the band was. I told Kara that we should rock-paper-scissor for blogging rights to the event, but she said we could both do it and link to each other. So here I am, competing with a NANOWRIMO winner…
Unfortunately, This is the best picture I have. From left to right: Harry Potter, Harry Potter, and Sirius Black
