Hawthorn & Holly are a pop punk band that plays songs about Harry Potter. Started in 2007, these wizards hail from Charlotte, North Carolina. Leah Schroeder and Christie Mowery weave gorgeous harmonies with Eddie Mowery on guitars and Dave Beaucar of Bristol, Connecticut on bass.

They have established themselves as a fixture in the wizard rock and geek rock community, performing as featured artists at Misti-Con, Chestertown’s HP Festival, New York Wrock Festival, and such fandom conventions on the east coast such as Dragon Con, Concarolinas, and the Charlotte Geek Gala.

Their albums include the upcoming We are the Wizard Resistance!Jinxed in the HeadOur Friends Are Wizards, and Christmas Magic. You might catch them playing songs about Doctor Who and The Hunger Games, in addition to other fandom songs. Don’t be surprised to find yourself dancing and singing along to their fun and infectious music, and falling in love with their ballads as well.

Hawthorn & Holly are the wands of Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter in the book, but in this band stands for the joining of light and dark to create music that appeals to the Slytherin in us all, but also shows that nothing is greater than the power of friendship!

The World’s Fastest Filker is here once again, with new songs, new CDs, and a gnu attitude. (Gnus are notoriously bemused, especially at great cosplay. Don’t ask how we know.) A Dragon Con mainstay since 2004, Tom Smith is always ready to riff on the universe, make up a song on the spur of the moment, shtick about with the audience, and in general cause a foofrah and folderol. If you’ve seen him, you know what we mean.
