I fully agree. I just don't see the appeal in him. I understand that all his music is about partying, but that doesn't make it good.


thank god. other people think this. i only know two of his songs and they both could have been joined together to make one whole song. (they sounded exactly the same).

Yes, if you listen to the album I Get Wet all the way through it sounds like one 35 minute song that goes chu-chu-chu-chu-chu-chu-CHUR-CHUR at (very slightly) varying tempos. Not a bad festival booking; it's the kind of thing that would put a huge smile on your face on a sunny morning. I'm suprised people wanted him in Bohemia - I thought he'd be perfect for opening mainstage.

IT's perfect feel good music that always pumps you up. I think that's his appeal. One of those bands you can listen to and just enjoy it for what it is rather than listen to say rise against and get a lecture from :lol:

Plus although his music does sound very similar I like it :D

Party Hard is an awesome tune and We Want Fun (although very similar) for the Jackass movie was also a good tune!

Not sure whether I'm going to Soni this year yet but I will be watching him in I can make it! :music-headbanger:

Andrew WK is a great booking. Never seen them live and always wanted to. He will have a big crowd for the slot he is in as well. I imagine most of his setlist will be from the I Get Wet Album.
