Called "Let's Big Happy," the series launches March 28 on MySpace (yes, apparently it's still functioning) and digital download sites. It will initially run for seven episodes and feature music from acts like Chiddy Bang (hip-hop duo from Philadelphia who played Hill Auditorium last year), We Are Scientists (New York indie rock) and the Gay Blades (UK pop).
Andrew W.K. gained national attention in 2001 for his first full-length album, "I Get Wet." He has since become a regular presence on music TV and branched out into motivational speaking, nightclub ownership and more, while continuing to release new music.
