Andrew W.K. Live at the Beauty Bar Backyard SXSW

March 16th, 2012

There’s nothing quite like the unbridled chaos of Andrew W.K. concert. Following an epic tremolo picking opening, the man in white came out with wife Cherie Lily and launched into “It’s Time to Party.” The crowd went absolutely nuts and became a swirling mass of fist-banging, moshing and stage diving. His band three guitarists strong, W.K. himself would alternate between singing/flailing his arms and playing keyboard like a virtuoso. “Girl is Beautiful” and “Long Live the Party” exploded the energy into joyful glee.

Andrew WK Gets Los Angeles Wet

March 12th, 2012

Andrew WK reunited his entire band for a raging tour with powerhouse team Math the Band. As an homage to the 10th anniversary of his first album I Get Wet, he set out to strike the world again with a set full of party-starting rock and roll.  Mindful of his beloved West Coast fans and their need for rock with speed, WK stopped at the Avalon to play an all-ages show.  This historic occasion brought all walks of life to the Hollywood Venue.  The music, though entirely hinged on everlasting parties and ragers, seems to please the masses.  His theme crosses over several fan bases due to its universal and rather timeless nature.  He wants people to always know that a party is a party no matter who, what, when, where, why, or how it happens.
