Andrew W.K. has a new gig lined up — cultural ambassador to the Middle East, as selected by the U.S. Department of State. The staunch partying advocate will be spreading that message abroad, traveling to Bahrain in late December, visiting universities and elementary schools alike. As he put it himself, on his website: “I’m very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I’ve never been before. And I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!" (Photo by whartonds) source
