Where's the party?

Andrew W.K. plays show, nobody parties

Fans of Andrew W.K. know that the guy indulges now and then in a party. And occasionally he likes to sing about it: “Party Hard,” “Long Live the Party,” “It's Time to Party,” “Party Til You Puke,” et cetera. So why was it that when W.K. decided to have a party Friday at Chop Suey, no one wanted to attend? Sure, there was some moshing for the first couple of songs. But that must’ve been carryover from the earlier D.J. dance-party, because by the time the rocker launched into 10 minutes of uninterrupted headbanging—banging his way through the silence between songs—clubgoers stood bored as if waiting in line at the post office. Not a nodding head in sight. C’mon, Seattle: The guy’s giving himself brain damage to entertain you! Don’t you want to party? (Update: The opening page on W.K.’s site seems to acknowledge party-related problems on his “High-way Party Cruiser” tour.)
