    Harry and the Potters
    Harry and the Potters
    Harry and the Potters are a mashup of pop culture, punk rock, performance art, meta literary critique, and DIY ethics. Using the power of rock and roll as a weapon against evil, they answer the question: What would happen if Harry Potter quit the quidditch team, stole a time turner, and started a punk rock band with himself from an earlier point in the space-time continuum? Since 2002 brothers Paul and Joe DeGeorge (Harry Potter Year 7 and 4 respectively) have released 3 full length albums and played over 600 shows in libraries, rock clubs, art spaces, bookstores, basements, backyards and pizza places all over the world. Their hyper-enthusiastic live performance is highly regarded and Pitchfork placed the band in their Best Live Shows of 2005 list noting, "the greatest rock and roll tour of the year took place this past summer in public libraries across America."
    The Potter Puppet Pals
    The Potter Puppet Pals are a popular puppeteering group that make absurdist Harry Potter parody videos featuring an egomaniacal Harry Potter, a completely oblivious Ron, an overly morose Professor Snape and an occasionally naked Dumbledore. Their "Mysterious Ticking Noise" video is one of YouTube's most popular comedy videos of all time with nearly 150 million views and Daniel Radcliffe as a proclaimed fan.
    Lauren Fairweather
    Lauren Fairweather is a cofounder of the wizard rock group the Moaning Myrtles as well as the YouTube collaborative channel FiveAwesomeGirls. Lauren’s songs feature catchy melodies over acoustic guitar and ukulele and cover everything from Harry Potter to Firefly to real-life experiences.
