Harry's End 

Wednesday, Jul 18 2007
Tonight, the publishing industry's best friend for the past 10 years — another fresh, new Harry Potter book — cracks its spine and emerges from a magical cloud of packing peanuts at the stroke of midnight. Naturally, our few remaining bookstores that sell new titles are reopening their doors for you early adopters, with a couple notable exceptions. (Yo, City Lights, y'all ain't got no love for the Hogwarts?) The Booksmith, Books Inc., and Borders are all in play, but late night in the Mission is hard to pass up, especially since some people will take the opportunity, as they always do, to play dress-up (and, by God, they better). Get "goodies, glitter, and a midnight countdown," along with 20 percent off the cover price of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
