Harry and the Potters
$10

If it surprises you that wizard rock band Harry and the Potters are still touring, years after the final book in J.K. Rowling's series was released, then you underestimate both the devotion of the Harry Potter faithful and the genuine appeal of the music of brothers Paul and Joe DeGeorge. Yes, the duo is still playing shows in Harry Potter costume, and still touring with the likes of the Whomping Willows and others in the surprisingly vibrant wizard-rock scene—but the apparent gimmick has two solid anchors: heartfelt, catchy pop songs, and an earnest commitment to generating excitement about books. If past performances are any indication, their show is a guaranteed night of good, wholesome, all-ages fun. When was the last time you had any of that? ALISON HALLETT
