Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Andrew WK But Were Too Busy Partying to Ask

Last night musician and party messiah Andrew WK stopped into the Newsroom for a free-form discussion about sports, depression and, of course, partying. He also told us a bit about his forthcoming book, The Party Bible, describing it as “a handbook, a guidebook, a game book — it’s an offering and it’s not a story and that’s why it’s really hard to write, because I have to try to make it really good.” (Just how hard is it to write? Check out the trailer). Above, watch the full q&a — and below, read some select thoughts about channeling Joey Ramone, mourning Lou Reed and being himself for Halloween.

Tuesday: Andrew W.K. Will Teach You How to Party Party Party

awk_flyer

As you gear up for Halloween, who better to give you that pre-party pep talk than Andrew WK, the man whose e-mail sig reads “PARTY HARD FOREVER.” Tuesday at the Newsroom, the rocker behind such anthems as “Party Hard,” “Party Party Party” and “I Love New York City” will actually sit down (and not at a piano; he’s saving that for 45 Bleecker next month) long enough to speak to us about his recently announced book, The Party Bible, which promises to be “an unforgettable voyage in search of truth, wisdom, and party bliss.”

Rest assured, we’ll also ask about his other recent doings: channeling Joey Ramone with Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg and touring with Black Sabbath. And this is your chance to ask him anything before his Reddit AMA next month. Pro tip: ask him how a motivational speaker, Grammy-nominated record producer, and owner of Santos Party House became the face of Playtex “Fresh + Sexy” Wipes.

We’ll see you Tuesday at 7 p.m., at 155 Grand Street, off of Bedford Ave, in Williamsburg. As always, the event is free — just let us know you’re coming.
