If you're anywhere near Philadelphia this Saturday, December 6, hie thee to the Bryn Mawr Yule Ball, a fantastic Wizard Rock Holiday concert at which The Moaning Myrtles, The Whomping Willows, Ministry of Magic, and The Mudbloods will be playing. All four PotterCasters will be in attendance as we shall serve as the night's emcees! It's also taking place in a Great Hall, people. Best of all?

It's FREE!

Get out your Yule Ball dresses and party suits, and we'll see you there for some fun with friends, music and holiday cheer.

All the details about the event (as well as a chance to RSVP, though you don't technically need to) are right here on the event's Facebook page.

It is at 8 p.m., Saturday, December 6, in the Thomas Great Hall at Bryn Mawr College:
101 North Merion Avenue
Bryn Mawr, PA

I am extremely jealous of everyone who gets to go to this. I’ve never been to a Wizard Rock concert (though I would absolutely love to) and this one just sounds too amazing to be missed. Alas, if only school didn’t exist, I lived nearby, and I could drive… So, a plea to those who go: Please post everything you can from it (especially if it’s video from Ministry of Magic- they’re one of my favorite bands)!

God I wish I could go. I go to school in Erie, so I could find someone to drive me for 6+ there! I am going to plan this out so I will be able to go! maybe I’ll take the bus. I wish I hadn’t given Harry, A History to my brother so I could have Melissa sign it.

givemesomeTLC,
This is not a new pottercast… it’s just an “invitation” to a Yule Ball this saturday.
That avatar can be a little misleading!

I wish I could go it sounds awsome. How about a recreation in Chicago sometime. At least make it in to a full PotterCast. I still listen to the Detroit Wrock City episode and The Minstry of Magic has never apeard on a PotterCast before that I am aware of. I will be thinking of you all and be extremely jelous :(
