Harry & the Potters, Hank Green, Driftless Pony Club Staff Pick

When: Mon., July 7, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $16
Fans of the Harry Potter books will get a kick out of the witty songs written by Harry & the Potters, with lines like “I got a mysterious gift from my dead dad/ It was an invisibility cloak, how rad,” from “Wizard Chess.” Founded in 2002 in Norwood, Mass., Harry & the Potters—made up of brothers Paul and Joe DeGeorge, who collectively perform in character as Harry, wearing wire-rimmed glasses and Gryffindor uniforms—are the starting point of the genre of “wizard rock.” Their sound is charmingly raggedy indie-pop/punk made from nothing more than guitar, synths, drums and yelpy voices—heard most recently on 2011’s Live at the New York Public Library—but these wizards can do more than make entertaining music. Determined to connect young people to music, Harry & the Potters’ shows are always all-ages. “We imagined that we would be able to harness this organic enthusiasm for these stories and expose young people to a sort of music and culture that might inspire them to say, ‘Hey, I could do this too,’ ” Joe says in an interview on DIY4Lyfe.tumblr.com. Hank Green and Driftless Pony Club are also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
