w00t!

We are so super mega uber excited to announce the info for Philly's Yule Ball :) Besides this post, you can get all the juicy details at our Yule Ball website and on Harry and the Potters' shows page.

Potterdelphia helps to bring this awesome event to Philly, along with R5 Productions and, of course, the bands. Money collected from the snacks table (featuring yummy wizarding treats) will be donated to First Book, in memory of the late S. Chris Saad, founder and owner of Chris' Corner: Books for Kids and Teens in Philadelphia. First Book is a national nonprofit organization with a single mission: to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books.

A million trillion gazillion thanks to Newgrounds for sponsoring our decorating fund! So when you show up and see all the pretty sparkly wintery decorations, thank Newgrounds and Tom :) It's going to look so beautiful!

But Draco and the Malfoys are playing! It's evil wizard rock!! How can you beat such classic tunes as "Voldemort is Awesome" and "My Dad is Rich, You're Dad is Dead"?

Classic, I tell you. Classic.

It's an all ages holiday event! What do you expect! Blood, sex, drugs and violence?

I've never ever been to a Yule ball before.. but then again.. I'm not big on x-mas either.

It doesn't matter if you're not big on Christmas, it's going to be all wintery and pretty and filled with wizard rock.

It's not a proper Yule Ball until Ron makes Hermione cry... and that I'd like to see!

What? No! It would only be a few hundred dollars for the flight, right? I mean, the show's only $10, you can't beat that.

There is also going to be Yule Ball Boston, on December 10th, which I may attend as well.

Does no one else love the wizard rock?

How can it be anything but interesting? Wizard rockers Harry and the Potters and evil wizard rockers Draco and the Malfoys?

And not wizard rock but the most awesome band ever to live, Uncle Monsterface!! Derockracy! Lobsters! Underground mutant prairie dogs from hell!

Cry with pleasure or pain?

God that's 15 minutes from my house, and one minute from my school :o

I could take the subway down there. *Thinks about it*

Maybe it could finally get me to read the 6th book I've been putting off reading.

Seconded.

Thinking of bands named after characters makes many words spring to mind: Gay, Stupid, Boring, Useless, Terrible... it goes on.

You're very shiney. I take that as a good thing


I have nothing against people who can use pot and lead a productive life. It's these sanctimonius hippies that make me wish I was a riot cop in the 60's
