In Which Cheryl Becomes a Wizard-Rock Groupie

Melissa A. and I went to the Harry and the Potters concert tonight at the Knitting Factory, with Draco and the Malfoys as the opening act. The concert rocked. No, wait, correction: It RAWKED. Terrific music, hilarious lyrics (or even just song titles: "Stick It to Dolores," "Cornelius Fudge is an Ass," "In Which Draco Malfoy Cries Like a Baby"), and an absolute passionate dedication to the spirit of love and of rock -- where Voldemort, of course, is the Man. They were awesome, and they are coming soon to a library near you.


  1. OMG, we went to see Harry and the Potters a couple weeks ago and LOVED them! My girlis were blown away - gotta love a child's first real concert experience :D

    I gotta cast a second vote to say they totally ROCK!

  2. They were at Donnell Library earlier in the day too. Packed house and teens singing along with the words they already knew. There's nothing like it.

  3. No, but when The Potters yelled, "What are you reading this summer?", a sweet fangirl yelled back, "A Wrinkle In Time!". They didn't quite know how to digest that one.

  4. The contrast of "Harry and the Potters" and "Draco and the Malfoys" brings back memories of Jem and the Holograms and the Misfits. Did the Misfits have somebody they were ______ and the Misfits with?
