Andrew W.K.’s true will is to create feelings of pure joy, true fun, total love, endless freedom, and infinite possibility, using music, performance, visual art, lecturing, writing, nightclubs, television, and more.

Born in California in 1979, Andrew W.K. is a multi-faceted musician and performer. Starting his musical career at age 4 with classical piano lessons, then exploring experimental and avant garde interests, he went on to create his own extremely high-energy rock ‘n’ roll music. After having been accepted to The Art Institute of Chicago, Andrew instead to decided to bypass college, and move to New York City at age 18 to pursue art and music on his own.

Andrew has released four full-length albums, numerous EPs and special releases, including his now infamous debut album, “I Get Wet”, featuring the world-wide smash single, “Party Hard”. He’s more recently expanded into a Grammy-nominated record producer for artists such as, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Current 93, SIGHTINGS, Aleister X, Bad Brilliance, and Cherie Lily. And he co-owns the Santos Party House music venue and nightclub in Chinatown, Manhattan, New York City. 


We were lucky enough to have an interview with Andrew W.K. before the show.  Check it out: 

1. We're very excited to be partying with you in Bellingham again!  Let's get to know each other a little better, shall we? 
Yes! I'm truly excited about coming back for another Bellingham party. I've been looking forward to this night for a while now and I can't believe it's almost here!
2. What would you say was your craziest live performance? 
It hasn't happened yet. There have been tons of wild shows, lots of chaotic parties, and hundreds of nights of total insanity. But as far as my craziest live performance goes? That is still to come. And honestly, I've got high hopes that this night in Bellingham will be it.
3. If you weren't playing music, what would you be doing? 
I never have played music and I never will. I have only partied and only continue to party. Sometimes music spontaneously seeps out from that partying. But all I can ever do is party. I have no other interests or skills. If I wasn't partying, I wouldn't have even come into existence.
4. You have redefined the word, "party" in many ways but there still are a lot of people that associated the word "party" with drinking.  When you are in the mood to have a drink, what would you say is your favorite cocktail?
Anything except urine, unless it's my own.
5. You've been getting somewhat involved with politics lately with your show on Glenn Beck's network.  If you ran for office, what political party would you run under? The 'Party' party?
I really don't discuss politics on my radio show much, at least in terms of specific governmental operations and socio-economic situations. My only expertise is in the field of partying - the all encompassing celebration of being alive - so I focus on that and keep the typical political party topics out of my partying. 
6. How hard are you going to party at your show at the Wild Buffalo on Tuesday, June 30th
Very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very hard.
7. Kill - Have Sex With - Marry
Monica, Rachel, Phoebe 
I fully understand and appreciate the spirit of this game, and I realize it's just for fun, but I would never kill anyone. Plus, I'm already married, so that doesn't work either. Plus, in my marriage, we decided to be monogamous, so I wouldn't really be in a position to have sex with any of these Friends characters. But, in the spirit of the game, I would like to combine all three women into a giant triple person, and somehow commit an act that simultaneously combines marriage, sex, and murder into one incredible feat of power. I'm not sure what it would be like exactly, but I'm visualizing it and it's pretty stimulating!
8. How many white shirts do you own? 
Right now, I have 3. At times, I've owned as many 60 white t-shirts. But I've gone through a whole bunch and need to restock. I wear them until they melt away into wet dust.
9. Who is your favorite musician? 
Don't have one.
10. Describe your perfect day off? 
I like movie theaters, amusement parks, and casinos. In Las Vegas, they basically have all three of those things combined! So I usually spend most of my free time there. But no matter, I'm always on a "day off". When your life is devoted to partying, you are constantly on and off at the same time. Like a light switch flicking back and forth extremely quickly until it all just becomes a blur and it's in both positions at the same time.
11. Anything else that you'd like to tell the beautiful people of Bellingham?
I consider it a genuine privilege to party with you and I am thankful in advance for the opportunity to share a night together. I love what I do and I love doing it with you. We are in this together, generating excitement and powerful energy that we can apply to all areas of our life. We are cheering each other up and cheering each other on. We will stay strong and we will never let down! That's what partying hard is all about.
