Everywhere, USA - Grab your juice box and get ready to rock - the DIY traveling
summer camp circus and crazy rock tour is coming to town. For six weeks this
summer, from June 25 to August 5, Harry and the Potters, Math the Band, and
Uncle Monsterface present the Unlimited Enthusiasm Exposition 2008.

Harry and the Potters, Math the Band, and Uncle Monsterface each have way
too much fun at their rock shows. Sharing a love for going completely bananas
on stage and for doing everything themselves, the three groups decided to set up
a traveling summer camp, circus, and indie rock tour - The Unlimited
Enthusiasm Expo(UEE), 2008.

Giant monsters, huge video projections, inflatable monkeys, camp fires and
circus tents combine with songs about wizards, dancing sock puppets, and
furious rock and roll aerobics to bring the nation a much-needed dose of insane

Harry and the Potters sing songs about the plight of being a young wizard, and
have primarily toured libraries for the past 4 years. Math the Band sings songs
about the water cycle while doing aerobics. Uncle Monsterface sings songs
about wearing capes as accompanied by sock puppets and giant
monsters. Harry and the Potters have godfathered an entire genre of music
known as wizard rock populated by over 500 DIY bands, all performing songs
about the Harry Potter book series. Math the Band performs so hard that he
throws up after every show. Uncle Monsterface does a sock puppet rock band
cover of Madonna's 'Like a Prayer'.

All three bands share a disturbing capacity for enthusiasm, and their audiences
are with them. Harry and the Potters and Uncle Monsterface have been joining
forces for nearly three years, and adding Math the Band to the roster and
crossing the country for six weeks will truly up the ante. Setting out to re-capture
the magic of summer tours before they became consumed by corporate
interests, the three bands are here to give fun back to rock and roll.

The Unlimited Enthusiasm Summer Tour is an attempt to present new ideas
about what a rock show and tour can be. With an intense focus on a
Do-It-Yourself ethic, audience participation, and a completely open and
welcoming mindset, expect a show filled with kids and adults, parents and
teenagers, all collectively enjoying themselves in an outpouring of geeky summer
fun. A participatory concert, volunteers from the local community and fan base
will be on-hand at each show to mix Kool-aid and make PB & Js, hang
decorations and blow up balloons, register voters (with Wizard Rock the Vote in
attendance) and play nintendo or dance on stage with us. There will be
name-tags! There will be bubbles! This is a home-made summer tour where
anything is possible and the power of rock and roll can, and will, change our

Get ready to jump and yell.
