ANDREW W.K. TAKES HIS SOFTER SIDE AND THE CALDER QUARTET ON TOUR

Andrew W.K., bloody-nose rocker turned motivational speaker and TV personality performs on solo piano with the Calder Quartet, a contemporary classical ensemble described as, “quite possibly the finest – and definitely the most adventurous – American chamber ensemble” (Bloomberg News).   Stimulating all parts of your brain, A.W.K. and Calder Quartet have teamed up to perform a collaborative show, mixing reverence with irreverence, and offering their audience a chance for both rapt listening and raucous dancing.   Challenging music lovers to explore their comfort zones, A.W.K. and Calder Quartet perform together towards a liberated and impassioned definition of art.  

Andrew W.K.’s piano performances during this tour will be inspired by his new solo piano album, “55 Cadillac” (releasing on September 8th 2009).

    Sounds awesome. I saw him at a big festival a few years back, this should be… well… different, but hopefully as good. I’ve got my eyes on the Toronto show.
