Multifaceted performer Andrew W.K. is coming to the Carlin Hotel Events Center, 2501 Montana Ave., on Aug. 19 for a 21-and-over show.
Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 the day of the show.
Andrew’s show incorporates music, performance art, visual art, lecturing and writing.
Born in California in 1979, Andrew started his musical career at age 4 with classical piano lessons, then explored experimental and avant garde interests. He went on to create his own high-energy rock music.
After being accepted to The Art Institute of Chicago, Andrew instead 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 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. He co-owns the Santos Party House music venue and nightclub in Chinatown, in Manhattan, New York City.
