LeakyRock! Two Songs in Honor of LeakyCon


May 08, 2009

Posted by Melissa Anelli

With LeakyCon just a week and a half away (and registration to close soon – did you get your ticket?) we’ve got two special songs written in honor of the occasion:

First, second, a Harry Potter song by Hank Green, released in honor of the occasion, “Dead Boy’s Girlfriend.”

Second, by Swish and Flick and House of Black,
is a” LeakyCon Theme Song,” which you can preview on either of their
sites. You can also purchase it (all proceeds to the HPA and Book Aid)
on those pages.

Here’s all the information you need to know if you are going to join the biggest and best Harry Potter party this year, in Boston on May 21!

Registration is here.

Schedule of Events:

Friday Morning
Friday Afternoon and Evening

Tickets to ALL of our keynotes are going fast (and keynotes do not clash with ANY other programming: there is no chance that when signing up for one you will miss anything else). Here, again, are the links to our other two terrific panels:

THREE enormous wizard rock shows with more than 15 bands performing
All in-conference programming
Vendor Room
Podcasts, including live PotterCast, Spellcast, Spinnerscast and more

And a lot more – an unbelievable value that is unparalleled anywhere. LeakyCon is a charity conference, with all proceeds benefiting Book Aid International and the HP Alliance.
