LeakyCon 2009, our Harry Potter conference in Boston this May, is currently open for registration and proposals (academic and informal), but tonight we are thrilled to announce our fabulous lineup of wizard rock bands for the event. They will take place over three days, on several themes:

Thursday: It's Evil Night (which will take place in the hotel's neighboring castle), 8pm to midnight, featuring Draco and the Malfoys, The Parselmouths, Justin Finch-Fletchley and the Sugar Quills and Swish and Flick

Friday: Rock Night, 8pm to midnight, featuring Harry and the Potters, The Whomping Willows, Gred and Forge, and Tonks and the Aurors

Saturday we will have an afternoon show (with a title to be announced) from 1pm to 5pm, will featuring The Remus Lupins, The Moaning Myrtles, The Mudbloods and RiddleTM.

That's twelve bands! Admission to all shows comes with a conference ticket, which you can get right here.

We can't wait to see you there!

TannerParadox I so agree! (Gred and Forge and MoM = my favorite bands)

too bad I can’t go anyway. (I live in Florida).

And also I’m wondering why JFF is considered “evil” b/c how many evil Hufflepuff’s have there been… ? I would say very,very few (if any).

Me? I’m waiting for Infinitus in 2010! =]

Why is Justin evil? Besides that- awww, that lineup sounds great; I really wish I could be there.

sooooo excited!

MoM being there would completely make my life, though.

you should switch JFF and RiddleTM.

RiddleTM

Lmao. JFF is the band that all the Slytherins pick on! You can’t be evil without someone to pick on!

I think the third show should be called the Sweet Wrockers night. All those people are the sweetest peope!

I’m a tad disappointed there’s no mention of MoM or OBatR, amongst a few other lesser known bands, but nevertheless that’s a great lineup. I’m thrilled that Vic and Georgia will be playing. Makes me very very happy!

Argh! This is so unfair. I actually live about twenty minutes from the venue, and I can’t go because my parents won’t foot the bill for registration. Curses! I really want to go!
