Harry & The Potters and Break Up Flowers

The last time I saw Harry and the Potters was in the summer of 2011, on a tour that coincided with the theatrical release of The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. It was a big deal. I skipped an important family event just to go, but it was a generational event I felt I couldn't miss—the Harry Potter books, and eventually the movies, shaped my childhood. And even though Harry and the Potters never broke up (although they haven't released a proper album since 2006's Harry and the Potters and the Power of Love), there was a melancholic air of certitude that this was the last time these songs would be relevant. Turns out we were wrong—wizard rock is one of the Harry Potter Universe's most enduring byproducts. It's superfandom at its purest and most adorable. I haven't reread Deathly Hallows since it was published, but Live at the New York Public Library is one of my favorite party-trick records. Solid pop-songwriting will always be relevant—Harry Potter-centric or not. MORGAN TROPER
