My Seattle Sounds co-host Josh Kerns and I spoke to Andrew W.K. earlier this week to catch up as the party-rocker gets ready to bring his debut, I Get Wet, to Showbox at the Market on Sunday. He'll be playing the entire thing in its entirety.
"I think with an album if you've listened to an album a lot ... the whole album becomes like a song," he told us. "And the end of one song is already taking you into the beginning of the next one. And you kind of hear them all together. So it's going to be fun to play like that at a concert rather than a song here and a song there."
At the end of our conversation, I asked Mr. W.K. if he'd sing us a few lines of I Get Wet's anthemic hit, "It's Time to Party." He happily obliged. Hear (or download) for yourself:
