July 19-22? Why, XPN, why?

I just cannot believe my luck! The summer show I’ve been waiting for, XPN’s XPoNential Music Festival, will be held at Wiggins Park from Thursday, July 19th through Sunday, July 22nd.

So why is this a problem? Why, it’s the same weekend as the release of the seventh and final Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! And since I am the organizer of the local Harry Potter group, I’m booked solid that entire weekend—from getting ready for our release party on Friday, to staying up all day Saturday reading, to discussing the outcomes on Sunday.

But… but… The Fratellis! The A-Sides! Los Lonely Boys! Grace Potter and the Nocturnals! Cracker! The Smithereens! Suzanne Vega!

But Andrea, you may say, you’ve waited years to find out what happens to The Boy Who Lived, surely you can wait another three days?

Dear reader, I reply, surely you have never met a rabid HP fan before, have you?

Oh XPN. I am so disappointed.

    That is a bummer that you’re all booked up like that for the XPN weekend (I still have a hard time letting go of the name Singer-Songwriter Festival). I’m planning on going for at least part of the weekend, if not the whole darn thing.

    Marisa: please let me know if it rocks as much as I think it’s going to!

    Jeff: every 3rd Sunday of the month we meet for discussion at the Goat in Rittenhouse Square. Our next meetup is this Sunday at 2pm! I’m hoping to have final confirmation on our book release party soon and will announce it as soon as I can. There’s a full list of events available on our website.
