It was only a matter of time before the bold sound of party rock made a triumphant return. First, there was Van Halen and Kiss, and then Poison and Twisted Sister. Now meet Andrew W.K. (aka Wilkes-Krier), the great new hope for the third millennium. He might be yanking our legs, but the gag is so deadpan that it barely registers as parody.

He will perform at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 30, at Wild Buffalo, 208 W. Holly St.

Andrew W.K. burst onto the scene in 1998 with a hybrid of metal, pop and dance that parodied yet paid tribute to the cheesiest and sleaziest aspects of all three styles.

Tickets are $15. Gig details: 360-746-8733, wildbuffalo.net. More on him at andrewwk.com.
