Step aside, LMFAO: The original party rocker, co-owner of Santos Party House, and the Voice’s very own advice columnist Andrew W.K. is bringing his Grand Piano Party back to Bleecker Street’s Subculture. This event, which features the musician banging the ol’ 88 with his feet à la Lady Gaga, is a departure from his usual party-hard rock ’n’ roll antics but also a return to his roots: W.K. started playing classical piano at age four, and it’s a skill he’s taken as far as playing his anthem “Get Wet” on Liberace’s piano in Beverly Hills — but not even such a posh venue could get in the way of a head-banging grunt-along.
