Metropolitan Library System Doubles Down
On Sure-Bet Wizard Rock Concerts

It’s not gambling when the game is as sure of success as the library’s annual Summer at the Library Wizard Rock Concert.  And this year, central Oklahoma’s coolest warm weather-palooza is doubled to add even more musical goodness. 

The library sings this summer with not one, but two Wizard Rock Concerts.  The first will be on Saturday, July 10, at the Del City Library, 4509 S.E. 15th Street starting at 7:00p.m.  The second will be on Saturday, July 24, at the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, beginning at 5:00p.m.

“If you don’t know what Wizard Rock—or ‘wrock,’ as they call it—is all about,” said MLS Youth Services Coordinator Emily Williams, “it’s rock songs that have been inspired by the world of Harry Potter in the books by J.K. Rowling.  Think of it as wrock and rowling.”

Both gigs feature some of the most popular wrock bands in the country, including at Del City Library the Whomping Willows, the Moaning Myrtles, and the Parselmouths.  Also on hand, and filming the festivities, will be YouTube celebrities Lauren and Kristina from the Channel Five Awesome Girls.  The Edmond Library show will have music from the Remus Lupins, Skyway Flyer, Fred Lives, Gred and Forge, and The Butterbeer Experience.        

It’s free and it’s fun so wrock on, wizards!
