This tour is based on an entirely new approach, mostly related to partying, but a revolution nonetheless. Revolution Brewing tap room seemed like the perfect place to host the very first Power of Partying speaking tour by Andrew W.K. himself.

The crowd was an extremely friendly and welcoming bunch and everyone was clearly there for one reason and one reason only; partying.

Andrew W.K. was greeted by an explosion of an applause as he walked up to the podium.
