Math The Band
A message to you from the band, Harry and the Potters.
"We are pumped to announce our 2008 Summer Tour!
We've organized the Unlimited Enthusiasm Expo '08 and we're hitting the road with some of our best pals. We fully expect that this tour will change the paradigm of what a rock and roll show can and should be. But to accomplish that, we'll need your help! Please go to www.unlimitedenthusiasm.com to find out more!"
Harry and the Potters are an indie rock band and pioneers of wizard rock formed in Norwood, Massachusetts in 2002 by brothers Joe and Paul DeGeorge. The band was inspired by the J.K. Rowling book series Harry Potter. Harry and the Potters music is simple unpolished indie rock with the Harry Potter books inspiring the lyrics, usually from the point of view of the fictional protagonist, Harry Potter.
After Harry and the Potters founded the wizard rock genre, many similar bands that also took on the persona, or dressed as a Harry Potter-themed character — began to appear at Harry Potter fan conventions. The band prefers to play in libraries. Though most fans of the music are previous fans of Harry Potter, some bands have attracted listeners outside of the Harry Potter fanbase. Harry and the Potters and wizard rock, in general, have grown into an international phenomenon.
Since the band's formation in 2002, they have released three full-length studio albums, three extended play, one compilation album and appeared in a further three compilation albums. The Boston Phoenix has called Harry and the Potters the "Pink Floyd of Potterdom."

After the show airs "live", you can listen to it via WREK's 7-day archive if you forget to tune in. Here are the direct links to Sunday Special streams: lo-fi or hi-fi. These streaming links from WREK expire 7 days after the show airs on the radio.
But wait, there's more! We now have a podcast available, for those of you who have discovered podcasting. You can also just download the whole show (right click on "download") although be forewarned that the file is over 50 MB in size.

In our first set we played live performances by local band Bangers, then Indian Jewelry from Houston, and then a selection from one of the bands playing at the P!X3L8 8-bit festival that you just missed (05-Jul). Then we played a whole set by local electronic act Recompas (recorded 08-May-2008) and then a whole set by El Paso prog rock act Corima (13-Jun-2008). Corima call their style "Zeuhl", say they're influenced by Magma, and sing in an invented language. Rawk!
