This was the annual Bledfest. I go every year. They have about 60 bands play inside an old high school. This year, though, the only band I saw was AWK. The lineup didn't do it for me this year. Anti-Flag headlined, but I didn't stick around for them b/c I went to the Taproot show in Flint. Bledfest is a great event, though, and I'm sure I will go again next year.

Andrew W.K. was a blast as usual. If you don't enjoy seeing him live, there's something wrong w/ you. This set was a bit different because it was not the full band. It was just him w/ his keyboards & a backup vocalist. Andrew made sure to remind the crowd that this was NOT a festival. It's a party! "I Love NYC" was changed to "I Love Howell, Michigan." Setlist:

It's Time To Party
Take It Off
Long Live the Party
Ready To Die
We Want Fun
You Will Remember Tonight
I Love NYC
Party Hard
I Get Wet

Man, I need to see Andrew W.K. at some point, but he never comes around here. I bet you feel awesome after the show.

I love how 3 songs have Party in the title.

AWK with a full band = must-see set
AWK solo with just a keyboard = must-skip for me

I dunno, I saw a live webcast of one of his first solo shows and it was horrendous.
