Ready for Twi-rock?

November 12, 2008 | 11:38 am

Plenty of bands and artists count the "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" books among sources of inspiration, but there may be only one that can credit "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke for its very existence.

The Los Angeles-based Twilight Music Girls stress they're not so much a band as a collective of  individual singer-songwriters, but there they are, lining up gigs at the 2009 edition of Twi-Con and performing Sunday (Nov. 16) at Borders in Westwood as part of an afternoon of "Twilight" music and discussion.

Actors Michael Welch and Peter Facinelli are scheduled to be on hand, and four of the five Twilight Music Girls will perform, singing songs of love, desperation and being obsessed with a vampire. Or, as Lyndzie Taylor may sometimes introduce her "Twilight"-inspired tunes to the non-bookstore crowd, "nerdy things."
