ride the lightning

My lovely friends Dahlya, Emily, Spencer, Rachel, and Rachel's sisters were happy to come along when I said Harry and the Potters were performing at the Phoenix Library this Friday.  Hooray for friends who are Harry Potter enthusiasts!  Well... Let's just say they probably wouldn't be my friends if they weren't.

As if seeing Harry and the Potters jam out to "Phoenix Tears" and "The Economics of the Wizarding World Don't Make Sense" wasn't awesome enough, I got to meet Amy from Amour et Chocolat!  We've read each other's blogs for probably the past two years, and surprisingly had never crossed paths (although we had a secret code Harry Potter quote just in case we thought we saw each other).  Although, meeting up at a Harry and the Potters concert is probably the coolest way to meet someone for the first time anyway.  Hooray for blog friends turned real life friends!

The concert was one of the most fun I've ever been to!  When you arrived, you got "sorted" by taking a pin out of a wizard hat.  I got Hufflepuff.  They also had a "Potion Bar" that they gave out beverages in different colors, but I never went over to grab one.  The Harrys (yes, they both call themselves Harry and during the concert talk as if they are Harry) were the best part.  They are so enthusiastic and you can tell how much fun they have playing these shows.  They threw confetti into the audience, taught us motions to go with the songs, screamed, yelled, and made continuous Harry Potter references that were so hilarious and fun.  The fact that this all went down in a library just makes it the best thing ever.

Of course I had to buy a t-shirt that has Hagrid on it with a shirt on that says "I <3 Hugs"... I am kind of in love with it.  The best part is that the Harrys signed it!  Joe wrote, "Believe in the power of LOVE (and magical babies)" and Paul wrote "Read with the volume on TEN!" How cool can you get?  Not much cooler in my opinion. 

What a magical event!  VOLDEMORT CAN'T STOP THE ROCK!
