Andrew W.K. @ Webster Hall

"Andrew W.K.'s 2001 album I Get Wet is one of those records that tends to polarize people; it combines monster riffs, giddy lyrics about partying and beautiful girls, and living-in-the-red maximalism in a way that either electrifies or makes people reach for the ANYTHING ELSE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD button.

Monday night at Webster Hall, though, the room was 100% in favor of the keyboard-wielding signer/motiviational speaker/club owner's debut, singing along from word one of "It's Time To Party" and taking that song's plainly stated message to heart throughout the evening. There was pogoing; there was yelling; there was headbanging; there were, at one point, about 40 people on stage who weren't contracted members of the band. A lot of the interlopers got off the stage in the most party-like way: They dove." [Village Voice]

Andrew W.K.' "I Get Wet" tour, which ends this weekend in Florida, and stopped in Austin for SXSW, hit a sold out Webster Hall in NYC Monday night (4/2). Here are some pictures. More of them, with the setlist, below...
