Harry and the Potters - Saving Ginny Weasley

SHARE Harry and the Potters - Saving Ginny Weasley

If you're one of the people counting down the hours and minutes until the stroke of midnight this Friday when the last Harry Potter book goes on sale, then a concert tonight might help the time go by faster.

Harry and the Potters will bring their wizard-inspired music to the Harold Washington Library tonight at 7.

Two brothers from Massachusetts – Paul and Joe DeGeorge – started the band five years ago.

The idea is that Harry Potter from year seven and Harry Potter from year four get together and start a band – and to understand the songs, it helps to be a fan of all things Hogwarts.

Like in this one, called “Saving Ginny Weasley,” it helps to know that the basilisk is a monster that is petrifying Harry Potter's fellow students and that Ginny Weasley – the younger sister of Harry's friend – is in mortal danger.
