ANDREW W.K. + CHEESEBURGER @ SANTOS PARTY HOUSE: 2/6/9 @ 7:30PM.
Andrew W.K. made his name a few years back with his debut album I Get Wet, an album with some of the most ridiculously over the top party anthems of all time. His mix of of heavy metal's power with dance music's singularity of purpose proved to be infectious, fun, and perfectly emblematic of his belief that people worried about being the right kind of cool miss a lot of opportunities to have fun.
His music is an agent of inclusive liberation from inhibitions, which is a pretentious way to say that his mosh pits are the happiest you have ever seen. He gives a solo set tonight at Santos Party House, the Tribeca club that he founded last year. NY's own Cheeseburger opens the show. And by the way, it's free, thanks to sponsorship from the good folks at Adult Swim. You should go.
