Who Wants a Pizza Party with Andrew W.K.?

Posted By on Thu, May 7, 2015 at 2:21 PM

  • Andrew W.K.

If you’ve ever seen an Andrew W. K. show, you know that it’s going to be one theatrical ode to partying after another, probably including his actual wife (Cherie Lily), who looks like she travels exclusively by Camaro. We caught him once at SXSW, and there was so much crowd-surfing that the videographer’s tripod got knocked over.

W. K. is coming to 1015 Folsom in a few months, and while it’s a DJ set instead of a live show, it’s also going to be a late-night pizza party that runs from 10 p.m. until three in the morning. His “true will” is to give people feelings of “pure joy, true fun, total love, endless freedom, and infinite possibility, using music, performance, visual art” and hopefully half-pepperoni, half-extra-cheese. The pizza is free, and there will also be a live set from Useless Eaters with support from DJ Primo, Hard French, Trill Team 6, Jamie Jams and more. Tickets are $17.50 but act fast before they go up to $20; if you miss out, you’ll have to console yourself at the secret new pizza place DNA Lounge is building.

Better than ping-pong against Carol Channing, better than sleepover side ponies with Ally Sheedy, and better than an absinthe tasting with Steven Tyler, it’s a pizza party with the ultimate arbiter of partying, Andrew W.K.!

Andrew W. K. Pizza Party, July 3, 10 p.m., at 1015 Folsom.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
