Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

Never one to back down from a challenge or a party, Andrew W.K. has agreed to participate in David Blaine’s upcoming electrocution stunt. As part of Electrified—where Blaine will ostensibly be shocked with 1 million volts of electricity for three days and nights—W.K. will play a Tesla coil-powered keyboard solo that will send one million “volts of party music” surging through Blaine’s body.

In his typically amped fashion, W.K. says he’s “electrified” to play such a powerful instrument, and hopes Blaine “can withstand my high-powered party piano playing.”


W.K.’s charged solo will take place this Sunday, Oct. 7, in New York City. It, along with the rest of Blaine’s magical torture, will be live-streamed on YouTube.
