I’ve long been a fan of Andrew W.K., whose irresistible and enthusiastic personality—which has powered a variety of eccentric musical projects—tends to make for seriously memorable live shows. (I remember one gig where I fell on top of a drum kit onstage and cut my left arm; the scar has faded, but while I still had it, noticing it always brought back fond memories.)

The dude also has a real knack for injecting his infectious energy into the creative pursuits he undertakes offstage—the video for “It’s Time to Party,” which is today’s 12 O’Clock Track, makes a fine example.
