Lo-Fi Indie Rock | High-Energy Live Music!
What would happen if Harry Potter quit the quidditch team, stole a time turner, & started a rock band from an earlier point in the space-time continuum?
The answer is Harry and the Potters.
Apparate to the Memorial Park Bandshell for a rockin' good time brought to you by Rapid City Public Library! Stay in the park after the concert for Rapid City's 4th of July Fireworks at dusk!
Harry and the Potters are hailed as the founders of wizard rock, a sub-genre of music boasting nearly 1000 bands playing songs about the Harry Potter books. Since 2002, brothers, Joe & Paul DeGeorge, have released three full-length albums & played over 800 shows all over the world. They co-founded the Harry Potter Alliance, a non-profit organization that has pioneered fan activism, were profiled in the documentary We Are Wizards, & appear on a Trivial Pursuit card in Sweden.
Their high-energy live shows have been legend for over a decade. This year they will release Lumos, their first full-length album in 13 years.
Pitchfork Media placed their band in the Best Lives Shows of 2005 noting, 'the greatest rock and roll tour of the year took place this past summer in public libraries across America... The Decemberists wish they could lit-rock like this.'
