ANDREW W.K. HEADLINES WARPED TOUR 2010 & BRINGS HIS OWN CIRCUS TENT – PLUS, THE LAUNCH OF THE NEW & IMPROVED ANDREWWK.COM
New York, NY – (June 24, 2010) – Headlining the Warped Tour 2010, Andrew W.K. is proud to announce the inclusion of THE ANDREW W.K. PARTY HOUSE – a 20’ x 40’ circus tent – at every Warped Tour date this summer, as well as the unveiling of his overhauled Web site, AndrewWK.com.
THE ANDREW W.K. PARTY HOUSE is an 800 sq. ft. air conditioned circus tent. It’s an unprecedented addition to this year’s Warped Tour, and a place for pure celebration and fun. Beneath the tent, fans will be able to MEET and PARTY with Andrew in a cool and comfortable air-conditioned room, and browse never before seen A.W.K. PARTY SUPPLIES, including new limited edition t-shirts and exclusive party merchandise. Fans will also have the chance to enter a raffle to win an ESP guitar on every Warped Tour date! Each day, winners will be chosen in a random drawing conducted by Andrew himself.
For those unable to meet Andrew and browse the new partying gifts at THE ANDREW W.K. PARTY HOUSE, Andrew is proud to announce the unveiling of his first ever online PARTY STORE! www.AndrewWK.com/store offers a user-friendly layout with easy-to-navigate features and a newly streamlined homepage. The new party supplies – including shot glasses, shoelaces, lighters, stickers and skateboard decks – will also be available at THE ANDREW W.K. PARTY HOUSE on Warped Tour.
Perhaps the most unique addition to the merchandise line is the Andrew W.K. collectible figure. Thanks to Aggronautix, Andrew W.K., the king of party music, is now available as a limited edition Throbblehead! The 7-inch figurine captures Andrew raging on stage as well as his trademark style. Each figure is individually numbered and limited to 1,000 bobble heads. Displayed in a windowed box, he’s accurately sculpted right down to the bloody face, arm tattoos, black watch and dirty whites.
Off stage, the rocker will be available to his friends and fans every week to interact with them on LIVE VIDEO PARTY CHATS on Stickam during lunchtime (depending on the time zone)! Chat with Andrew at http://stickam.com/andrewwk on the below dates:

Andrew and his partners opened Santos Party House 3 years ago, at 96 Lafayette Street in New York City. The new video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tZy_AvnNrY) showcases the incredible atmosphere of this 8,000 square foot nightclub and concert hall. The footage, which features Santos regular DJ Questlove (of The Roots and Jimmy Kimmel Live) was created by Arowana Films to give people the physical feeling of what a night at Santos is like. Arowana Films has been producing films and commercials for the past 10 years on the west coast and has just expanded its reach to New York City. For more info, go to www.arowanafilms.com
