Creevey Crisis is an Inferi

Tumblr page for the sometimes wizard rock band Creevey Crisis. I am, however, ALWAYS a wizard rock fan, and write/edit for the Wizrocklopedia. I like to blather a lot, so expect lots of info on wizard rock, recording, stuff about books, and occasionally some fanfic-related stuff as well (Hinny = OTP). Opinions are purely my own, and not reflective of the Wizrocklopedia.
Who I Follow

…I pick the absolute worst possible times to have ideas for songs and riffs hit me.

I’ve got 2 songs down, and another 2-3 in various stages of creation. 

I’m hearing wrock lyrics in my head when I’m trying to think of melodies. I cannot guarantee that if these songs ever see the light of day, that they will be wizard rock though.

It’s mostly down tempo, heavy but not totally distorted out music.

I have absolutely no time to work on, or record, any of it.

Which means I’ve probably got some sleepless nights ahead of me.


On August 31st, Jesse Newman and I played a wizard rock show for the Geek Girls of Hartford’s epic End-of-Summer Harry Potter Party. What progressed was a night of incredible connection, laughs, and music that no one really anticipated.

This show was so special to me, as I was fresh off of Tour, missing the music and my tourmates. The show brought me back to myself. I’m forever grateful to the Girls and to Megan Forbus for inviting us to play.

Sit back and have a listen! If you’re new to wizard rock, it’s a great introduction to the best the genre has to offer. If you’re an old fan, have a listen to your favorite songs reimagined.

I haven’t had much time for any free reading over the past few weeks since school started again, but I just read “Eleanor & Park” on my daughter’s very, very strong recommendation.

Wow. Loved it.

After I was done, she was going on and on about how angry the end made her. I had to gently explain (more than once) that realistic outcomes are not always happy endings. Everyone doesn’t always end up together forever. I, for one, loved that the book ended the way it did. 

She didn’t agree with me that there were a lot of similarities to “Stargirl” but that’s OK. Kind of weird, but kind of cool to be able to have these discussions with my daughter now. 


New song in the works!

Well, these lyrics have been sitting in my notebook for a while now but I’ve nearly got the guitar part worked out.

All I can say for sure is that the song will be called “Midnight Thestral”.

More to come soon!


I wanted to come up with a way to describe this song, but I couldn’t. Not really.

All I could think of was, hearing a song like this for the first time reminded me of what it felt like to long after someone for ages, and then finally reach that moment where you realized they longed for you too, and the sheer overwhelming joy that engulfed you the very moment you first realized it together.

Or something like that. 

That outtro. Hot damn. 


Did any of the Weasleys (besides Ron) know about Harry and Ginny during HBP? Like we don’t even have a scene where someone has an awkward moment trying to skirt around the subject. There is no verification that anyone knew. I feel like everything was kept quiet or something. How did Ginny keep…

And this is where a fic like “Ginny Weasley and the Half Blood Prince” is so wonderful (to me, anyways). It’s about the closest to canon any fanfic’s come (IMHO), and it addresses a lot of these points that I think so many other people have as headcanon.

I just completed my bi-annual re-reading of the 7 books, and re-read GW&THBP alongside Book 6. It was pretty damn awesome.

Hey, guys!  I just finished recording As You Walk today.  I have had the song written for ages and I’ve failed to have a decent recording until today.  It’s the notorious Forest/Chapter 34 song that every wizard rock band writes, but it is my version.  I hope you enjoy it!

I like it!! 

Pissed, Drunk, And Fighting for Justice

by Diagon Alley

Yeah so I’ll reblog the Diagon Alley stuff, since they’re all great guys who’ll give you the shirt off their back and happen to make great music.

Know what I really love about Diagon Alley? They’re not assholes who emotionally abuse women, steal people’s money, and bully teenaged girls. And they’ve never needed Autotune.


Firstly, how many people remember the wrock band How Airplanes Fly?

I don’t know if everybody already knew about this but I found a bunch of her music on soundcloud. All I can say is how happy I am for this discovery because her music is freaking awesome and it’s one of my main inspirations for wrock.

If you’ve been looking for more of How Airplanes Fly or have never heard her before, CLICK THIS NOW.

Love it when people discover older, amazing wrock bands!!!

PSSSST check out Hollow Godric yet, if you don’t already own all their stuff.

It’s Not Stalking If It’s Love by How Airplanes Fly



A Plea To the YouTube Community (Regarding Sexual Abuse)

Can you re-blog your own stuff? If so, I feel like this is important enough.

Tumblr was the forum where I found the freedom and support to speak out, so I’m continuing to do so. I love the power and strength of the Tumblr community.

Reblogging because I agree with Sunny.

It’s one thing to still appreciate the art that a major asshole created, if you can separate the two (and some can). It’s another thing to welcome someone back to a community that they tore apart because of their despicable behavior.

Stand up. Stand up and fight to keep your community clear of assholes who abused their position and took advantage of far too many people.

New Music Roundup!



Since our last round of posts, a number of new wizard rock songs, EPs, and albums have been released on platforms ranging from BandCamp to iTunes and the good ol’ fashioned…



In March of this year I threw a grenade into the Nerdfighter/YouTube community. As difficult as the aftermath has been, I’m proud of myself and of my friends for speaking up and I’m thankful to all of you have been standing with me and supporting me through this. I would truly be lost without…

The notion that any of these dudes have gone through the necessary process of professional evaluation, counseling, and rehabilitation such that they’re no longer a danger to girls and women is absurd, and regardless, there is no circumstance in which it would be appropriate for them to reestablish their YouTube careers. It’s unfair to say that our community was complicit in the crimes these men committed, but shame on us if we open the door for their return. Keep talking. Don’t become complacent. Keeping our community safe requires constant vigilance. 

A couple of times recently I’ve posted or reblogged something in regards to the wizard rock “community”. Particularly in regards to those who are known to have been emotionally abusive, bullies, and allegedly taking money from their fans and giving them nothing in return. 

The problem is, after I post it, I feel a tinge of regret. Not about them, because to be quite honest, IDGAF about them. But I do feel badly about the people who get lumped in with them because they made music together and have done nothing wrong (and have distanced themselves), and then I delete the post.

I think it’s because I have a conscience. Something a few of those guys obviously know nothing of. I enjoy being snarky every now and again. But I don’t enjoy being outright mean and spiteful, no matter how justified it might be.

Hi Creevey Crisis! It's been so long and I'm sorry for losing touch, but I heard your cover of "Too Many Summers" only a few days ago and really enjoyed it! I hope everything is going well for you so far and look forward to future tumblr posts!

Well HELLO there! 

That makes me so happy to know that you heard the cover and enjoyed it! It was far too long ago when you gave me the OK to cover it via our MySpace messages (so that pretty much dates it right there). I finally got around to covering it about a year ago and knowing it has your approval has me breathing a silent sigh of relief. 

I hope that you’re considering releasing more music soon, I can’t think of any wrock fans that wouldn’t want to hear more Standing In Line. Especially right now.
