Andrew has just announced that he will be doing a special lecture about Pinkie Pie and partying at the 2012 My Little Pony convention!

Rock 'n' roll party man, Andrew W.K., has announced that this fall, he will bring his special brand of fun to Canterlot Gardens in Ohio, the premiere My Little Pony fan convention! Celebrating the national resurgence of My Little Pony popularity since the release of Hasbro’s “Friendship Is Magic” cartoon, W.K. has been personally invited to answer the question “What Would Pinkie Pie Do?” In this panel, W.K. who's beloved for such anthemic songs as “Party Hard” and "We Want Fun", considers himself to be the living embodiment of the positive, party pony, Pinkie Pie, and will talk about how to make your work as fun as your party and your party as important as your work.

W.K. has spoken in the past of his support for the growing “Brony” sub-culture which is the unexpected male obsession with My Little Pony and “Friendship Is Magic”. This fan-base if comprised of men in their teens, up to 40 years of age. Lauren Faust, who helped to draw adults to Cartoon Network with her work on "The Power Puff Girls" and "Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends", also helped to revamp the My Little Pony franchise with sophisticated writing and nuanced characters. The results are drawing animation fans of nontraditional ages, genders, and lifestyles.
