Update: The chat is now over, thanks a lot to Andrew for spending some time with us!
Andrew WK will be chatting in this thread at 6 pm EST / 3 pm PST. Ask him about partying, his endorsement for Playtex Fresh & Sexy Wipes, his upcoming tour singing Ramones songs with Marky Ramone, or his upcoming appearance at Skate and Surf. The festival takes place on May 18/19 and tickets are still available here.
I do hope—at this point, we’re looking at fall or winter—to have those open months. I need at least three months. The good thing is that I keep writing, whether it’s lyrics or melodies or rhythms or riffs. I do require some unbroken time to record the whole thing. That’s the thing about albums—you have to make them. I’ll release it after I finish making it, I think. I was going to try to put it out before it was recorded, but people advised me that it might not be a smart idea.
Andrew W.K. is going to perform a 1,000,000 volt keyboard solo through David Blaine's body. Andrew’s electric keyboard solo will take place this Sunday, October 7th, at West Street/11th Avenue and 13th Street in downtown Manhattan at 7:30pm. You can stream the event on Youtube as well.
Andrew W.K.'s I Get Wet will be reissued on CD and vinyl in honor of its 10-year anniversary on July 17 via Century Media Records. The release will feature a second disc containing previously unreleased material. Details in the replies.
Check out The Evaporators' music video for "I Hate Being Late (When I'm Early)" featuring Andrew W.K. in the replies. The song is off Nardwuar's upcoming compilation, which will be released on March 6.
Andrew W.K. will set the record for most times the word "party" appears in a song at Joe's Pub in New York on June 16 as part of a charity event to benefit Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
