One year after the release of the final Harry Potter movie, fans who may be suffering from withdrawal have an alternative to help feed their Harry Potter addiction.
The band Harry and the Potters, along with the Potter Puppet Pals, will be performing Aug. 5 at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H.
Harry and the Potters, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, plays songs about the Harry Potter books. It has three full-length albums and founded a music genre called wizard rock. Its music is a mash-up of punk rock, performance art and pop culture.
The Potter Puppet Pals, a group of hand puppets that star in a series of Harry Potter-parody YouTube videos — including the immensely popular “The Mysterious Ticking Noise” — will join the band. This is the puppet group’s first national tour.
Harry and the Potters and the Potter Puppet Pals will perform at 7 p.m. Aug. 5 at the Lawrence Arts Center in an all-ages show. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students and seniors and $8 for children under 12.
