Thought about making Decatur Library’s first wizard rock show, but it didn’t fit into your schedule? Had an amazing time and can’t wait for more wrock? You’re in luck: DeKalb County Public Library is partnering with City of Decatur Active Living to bring wizard rock back to Decatur!
The Whomping Willows, Lauren Fairweather, Justin Finch-Fletchley and Armoured Bearcub will perform on Thursday, October 21st at 5:30pm at the Decatur Recreation Center. Click here for the event listing on the library’s website, and here for our original blog post explaining wizard rock.
The bands are touring this fall in the memory of Esther Earl, a 16-year-old Potter fan who passed away recently from thyroid cancer. Earl inspired those in the Harry Potter community through her positive outlook, witty humor, and her message to love and live to the fullest. Through their tour, This Star Won’t Go Out: A Tour For Esther, the bands hope to raise money to help Earl’s family pay for her medical expenses. The Boston Globe recently wrote a wonderful article about Earl; it can be accessed here.
