Harry and the Potters @ Wesleyan . . . 2004?

So, seminal wizard-rock duo Harry and the Potters are playing at Alpha Delt tonight, probably going on in less than an hour.  This is exciting, and you already know this, and hopefully got tickets, because we already blogged about it, and we’re not advertising it again.

Strangely enough, though, this isn’t the band’s first show at Wesleyan. Or Alpha Delt, for that matter. (Why Alpha Delt?) (Why not Alpha Delt?)

A wall post by anonymous alum ’07 on the Facebook event points out that the band played here five or six years ago, before you were even a twinkle in your admission officer’s eye, and it was kind of a big deal. It’s even mentioned in the ADP blurb in Wesleying’s 2006 Guide to Greek Life. The show preceded this blog’s existence by at least a year, and I can’t find an Argus article on it (help?), but I did find a mention in Wesleying co-founder Ishuku‘s  enlightening list of Shows I Hate Myself For Missing. (It seriously is enlightening. I had no idea most of these bands played at Wes during my lifetime, and it makes me wonder what a similar list would look like circa 2010.)

Enjoy the show, current students. Throw me some history in the comments section, recent alums.


It’s for real! They’re coming here this Friday because of the beautiful Cheryl Tan ’11 and the Adelphic Education Fund. Tickets are free, but they’ll go fast. Be at the Star and Crescent, 185 High Street, to accio one into your own wizard rock-loving hands.

Hello, Potters enthusiasts!

The schedule for the Friday:

5.30 pm, ADP Greene Room, Film Screening of We Are Wizards
7.30 pm, ADP Greene Room, Q&A with the band
9.30 pm, ADP Living Room/Foyer/Front Porch, Concert

I (Cheryl) will be giving out the tickets in chunks at S and C Hours this Wednesday Dinner, Thursday Lunch and Thursday Dinner. This means one third of them at each giving.

You don’t need a ticket to watch the film and attend the Q&A, but there are fire safety capacity things which mean that we will not be able to accommodate everyone who wants to come.

The same applies to the concert, but we have enough room for about 200 people. The windows will be open and we are working on overspill strategies, but there’s not much we can do there.

This is going to be awesome!

Date: Friday, December 3rd
Time: 5:30, 7:30 and 9:30
Place: 185 High Street
Cost: Free, but ticketed
