Concert Review: Andrew WK 7/28/08

Last month Lansing was rocked hard by one man. One man wielding a single synthesizer. One man whose good will and exuberance was enough to turn Basement 414 into a writhing love fest for all things relating to rock anthems. Apparently on a trip to visit family and friends in his native Ann Arbor, Mr. WK was kind enough to stop by the intimate venue to share his anthems of love, goodwill and partying. By and large the set consisted of requests from the ecstatic crowd, running the gamut of hit singles such as We Want Fun, and Party Hard. Though the set was stripped down, the rousing nature of his compositions matched with his larger than life personality had much of the club hopping, dancing and decidedly befuddled. And as soon as it had started, his key bashing, hair swinging, fist pumping performence faded out into completion, and the attendees stumbled out into the muggy eve, all the better for having seen this opportune rock event.

    That show was easily one of the best I had been to in the last year. Even with all the drunk idiots who came in and ran around trying to cause problems the show was a blast!

    Hope he is in the southern Michigan area again soon.
