Andrew W.K. will play drums for 24 hours starting today in Times Square, but why not in the M&M's store?

Long ago, Andrew W.K. made great music for hockey arenas. Nowadays, he parties, and if “partying” to you means doing high-profile antics, then I guess this your party. Serious, if someone played drums at a party I went to for 24 hours, I’d lose it, be all like, “SHUT UP WITH THE FUCKING DRUMS ALREADY.”

But lo, according to dude’s website, Andrew W.K. “will man the kit in Oakley’s flagship Times Square store, being joined by the occasional surprise guest (The Roots’ metronome ?uestlove will serve as his co-pilot for the first leg of the journey). But mainly, he’ll be going it alone, and according to MTV News, “he’s actually slightly terrified about the task at hand.”

But wait, so ?uestlove’s gonna hold his hand half the time? BOOORING, especially considering that I personally know the man responsible for the World’s Largest Maple Bar record. Apparently this all goes down at 7 PM EST and is in part with the O Music Awards, who in their act to bestow “digital” and “analog genius awards,” forgot a posthumous award for Michel Loltito, a.k.a. Monsieur Mangetout, the man responsible for eating a fucking Cessna. I mean, I don’t mean to get down on you, W.K., but there’s still room for improvement.
