WRock Events

with 2 comments

So last weekend saw two major events happening in the WRock world, one here in the US and the other across the ocean in England. Thanks to the wonders of YouTube, we’ve got video from both.

Let’s start with the US.

The event was WRockstock, held just outside St Louis, MI in the Ozark Mountains. WRockstock was a two day WRock festival that included a huge line up of almost every major band in the scene. I haven’t come across a whole like of video from this show, but the fine folks over at WizRockLopedia have put up two fun clips from the event.

First up is a teaser video. Hopefully this means a lot more video is still to come from them.

Next, we’ve got the closing song from the event, Draco and the Malfoys, with literally everyone sitting in, doing a cover of Harry and the Potters’ The Weapon.

To give you an idea of the scope of this thing, there are even videos up on YouTube featuring people moping about not being at WRockstock. Here’s my favorite,

The second major show last weekend was Potter Rocks, the first multi-band WRock show to occur in England. Thanks to the fine folks over at Fandom Forecast there’s a lot more video of this event. For the full list of videos, check out this link. Here are a couple of favorites though,

RiddleTM doing Ode to Voldemort. It really should be illegal for women so young to have so much talent.

The Black Sisters doing Voldie Is Our King. I’m now officially nominating The Black Sisters as the UK’s answer to the Parselmouths. BTW, that’s a good thing.

Siriusly Hazza P, covering the Moaning Mrytles‘ Then I Died. Definite points here for the vocal arrangement.

OK, instead of just listing every video from the event (they’re all pretty cool) I’ll just bring it to a close with two collective efforts from the bunch,

First the Mysterious Ticking Noise. No, I’ve got no idea where this is from.

And because all major WRock events need a reference to Harry and the Potters, here’s a cover of Save Ginny Weasley.

OK, that’s about it from me for today.

Alright, one last video from Potter Rocks. Bella and the Deatheaters doing a song who’s name I don’t know.
