The tour, which launches June 1 at New York’s Knitting Factory, upholds the wizard rock tradition of playing in libraries across the U.S. and Canada, with a few exceptions, including Fitzgerald’s in Houston, Texas (June 15), Slim’s in San Francisco (June 29), Wonder Ballroom in Portland, Ore. (July 10), and the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden in Astoria, N.Y. (July 19).

The band will play a free show at Harvard Square in Cambridge, Mass., on July 20, the day before the release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” before resuming their tour, which will see them on the road through the middle of August.

Joining Harry and the Potters for three shows (June 19 in Albuquerque, N.M., June 23 in Las Vegas and June 26 in Los Angeles) will be Pottercast.

Of course what’s Harry Potter without his foil? Draco and the Malfoys will accompany the Potters for all dates after the release of “Deathly Hallows.”

In case you’re wondering, wizard rock is a genre that emerged around 2002. The movement, which features young musicians playing songs about – you guessed it – characters in the Harry Potter books, now numbers more than 200 bands.

Other wizard rock bands include The Whomping Willows, Justin Finch-Fletchley, The Sugar Quills, The Hungarian Horntails, The Marauders, The Parselmouths, and The Remus Lupins.
