Andrew WK at Webster Hall, April 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Andrew WK

As part of David Blaine's Ultrabook Experience event, "Electrified," Andrew W.K. will perform a unique keyboard solo using a tesla coil powered instrument in which David Blaine will be imprisoned as 1,000,000 volts of party music surge through his body. Presented by Intel, "Electrified" will find the master magician this weekend standing on a 20-foot-high platform at Hudson River Park Pier 54 in New York, surrounded by seven towering metallic orbs - or tesla coils - that will stream 1 million volts of electricity around him for 3 days and 3 nights. The sounds W.K. creates with this groundbreaking new musical instrument will send electric currents through Blaine's entire body!
The "Electrified" event will go down  10/5 - 10/8 but you can look for Andrew WK to play his solo on Sunday 10/7 at 7:30PM at 13th St and 11th Ave. Alternatively, check it out on youtube who will streaming the entire event.

UPDATE: There's an RSVP

Besides that "electrifying" performance (I'll be here all week!), Andrew WK will be hosting/DJing The Syndicate's annual pre-CMJ Conflict Of Interest show on 10/15 at Rebel NYC (251 West 30th Street, New York) alongside performances from Savoir Adore, Team Spirit, Pacific Air and The Hounds Below. Doors are at 7PM and the show is free with RSVP.

I used to think Andrew W.K. was cool and all his publicity seeking was just down to his childlike innocence now I know he's just a Kardashian, Snookie abortion publicity whore.

Yes, please let it rain that day indeed!

It is a dream of mine to have 1,000,000 ounces of liquified hummus rushing over my body like a wave of freshness.

Maybe the coolest idea Andrew WK has come up with.

My father works for Heinken and he told me this weekend that Blur, Muse and Depeche Mode are the headliners for Coachella. Heineken is sponsoring this year again.
