Andrew W.K. is set to speak this September at Ohio's Canterlot Gardens, a convention for the cult show My Little Pony. The positive party rocker will host a panel to ponder "What Would Pinkie Pie Do?" in an exploration of Pinkie Pie, a pony who shares many of W.K.'s rambunctious qualities. The "Party Hard" singer will also speak on wider topics, like making partying as important as work.

Canterlot Gardens will take place on September 28th-30th in Strongsville, Ohio. For more information, visit the convention's website.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
