Andrew W.K. Named US Cultural Ambassador To The Middle East
The "Party Hard" singer will travel to Bahrain early next month (December) to promote partying and positive power in the troubled region. He was invited by the US embassy in Manama in partnership with the US Department of State. Andrew W.K. will begin his journey in the first week of December and will visit elementary schools, the University of Bahrain and music venues to promote partying and world peace. Commenting on his role as a cultural ambassador, he said: "This is a tremendous invitation. I'm very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I've never been before. I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!" (via NME) Last month, the party veteran delivered a motivational speech to a "My Little Pony" convention. The hedonistic rocker featured on a panel at Canterlot Gardens, a "My Little Pony" convention in Strongsville, Ohio, preaching the virtues of individuality to the audience.
