Party aficionado Andrew W.K. has announced the latest grab from his bag of party tricks. On June 19th, he will seek to break a world record by drumming for 24 consecutive hours at O Music’s Live Music Day Festival.
Specifically, Andrew will seek to set the record for the “Longest Drumming Set in a Retail Store” (the event will take place in an Oakley store). Funk rock/hip hop legends The Roots drummer ?uestlove will join Andrew for the first portion of the day. Other surprise drummers will drop by to join in, “pumping him up and cheering him on as he strains to keep the beat going for the entire day and night.”
Andrew last released deluxe reissue of “I Get Wet” for its 10th anniversary in August 28 2012 via Century Media Records.
