Torontoist finished Book 7 last night, and we’re feeling a little down about the Harry Potter saga being over. Sure, everything turned out alright (and Mrs. Weasley said the B-word!) but we can’t help feeling like the wizarding world no longer needs our support. Under normal circumstances, we would be binge eating and watching Prisoner of Azkaban on repeat.
Thankfully, Toronto will be flooded with Harry Potter fans this weekend, keeping the wizarding spirit alive. Prophecy 2007 organizers are hosting their own exclusive wizard rock concert this evening, but the rest of us can catch Harry and the Potters, Draco and the Malfoys and awesome muggle-band The Bicycles this Saturday, August 4 at Whippersnapper Gallery (587a College Street) for a 3:00 p.m. all-ages show.
We saw Harry and the Potters when they played the Tranzac back in March, and it was the feel-good show of the year. (Check out the guys playing “Voldemort Can’t Stop The Rock” in Portland, Oregon on July 10, 2007.)
It may sound nerdy, but it’s just about as nerdy as waiting outside of Chapters at midnight on the day of a book release. Don’t pretend you weren’t there.
