We had to check the calendar to make sure today wasn’t April Fool’s Day when we learned that Andrew W.K., of “Party Hard” fame and co-owner of Santos Party House in New York City, has been named cultural ambassador to Bahrain by the U.S. Department of State. Though W.K. is known for his raucous live shows and kick-ass DJ sets, the appointment makes sense since he’s also an accomplished motivational speaker.
Obligatory press gush from W.K.: “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. And 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!”
Andrew W.K. is set to tour Bahrain next month. Details of his tour have be revealed for shortly.
