Wizard rock will be heard at Kamloops Library

There will be magic in the air at the Kamloops Library next week.

Harry and the Potters formed in Norwood, Mass., in 2002 and staked their claim as the first wizard rock band.

Since then, the two — a duo of brothers Joe and Paul DeGeorge — have played more than 800 shows in libraries, rock clubs, book stores and basements all over the world.

The band released three full-length albums between 2003 and 2006, and have just added a fourth with Lumos, released June 21.

Despite its strict limitation to the Harry Potter universe, wizard rock has become an established rock subgenre, conjuring up other acts like Draco and the Malfoys, MC Kreacher, Ministry of Magic and The Mudbloods.

Audience spots for the free Monday concert will be first-come, first-served, so the library has recommended showing up early for the 7 p.m. start time.
