OTD's President's Day Ticket Giveaway marathon continues....
Some of you may have heard about Close Calls with Brick Walls, Andrew W.K.'s import-only follow up to The Wolf. If you don't live in Japan, you probably haven't, and you'd be forgiven if you'd assumed that Andrew had fallen off the face of the earth.
The truth is much, much weirder.
Rumors abound that Mr. W.K. has undergone a radical stylistic transformation, that he has gotten a musical transfusion and perhaps even a haircut, that a new and improved AWK will be relaunched in the near future. We can confirm none of this. However, by all outward appearances Andrew seems to be exploring new career avenues: his last several public appearances have been speaking engagements of one kind or another. For one such sold-out appearance, "Ask Andrew Live," he had fans send him questions in advance, then chose a single inquiry at random and offered a 20-minute-long extemporaneous answer. He's adjusting that scenario next month at PIT-NYC with a three-week "lecture series" and Q&A session entitled "The Joy Trilogy." And then there's this: invited to perform alongside My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, and Weird Al Yankovic at New Jersey's mammoth "Bamboozle" concert this coming spring, Andrew instead asked to give a speech outisde the doors of the venue prior to the concert -- a talk described as "a statement on pure fun, as part of [Andrew's] pep rally to celebrate life, love, and music."
In the meantime, Mr. "Party Hard," Mr. "Party Til You Puke," Mr. "It's Time To Party," has finally started hosting some parties. He made his DJ-ing debut last month in NYC, took over the decks at the infamous hipster confab Misshapes this past weekend, and will arrive at our own "Throwed" on Tuesday, alongside Spank Rock's Chris Devlin and Paper's E-Marce.
We had a bunch of list spots to give away for this, and then half the office decided they want to go. If that's any indication of how hot a ticket it's gonna be, we advise you to get thee to Harpers EARLY.
So yeah, we've got very, very limited guest list spots for this -- if you want one, follow these instructions:
