He’ll take that as a question: Q&A with Andrew W.K.
Following the announcement of Groovin The Moo appearances and sideshows all over the country, guerrilla rock ‘n’ roller Andrew W.K. is giving Melbourne fans the opportunity for a tête-à-tête. The Manhattan muso and all-round good time gent will be hanging out at Polyester Records in Flinders Lane for a Q&A session on May 3 from 5.30 p.m., being pumped by store co-owner Simon Karis on the meaning of life. Fans will also have the chance to ask any burning questions they’ve got. Best of all, it’s free! Party on!
Support acts for Andrew W.K. have also been announced, with Aleister X joining him around the nation. Bitter Sweet Kicks are ready to tear Melbourne a new one, while Brisbane local Scraps is set to appear at The Zoo. Sydney audiences will be treated to good ol’ fashioned garage love from Bang! Bang! Rock n roll and Perth gets Frozen Ocean.
