Confirmed Brony Andrew W.K. To Speak At 'My Little Pony' Convention

Musician/Entertainer/Public Speaker Andrew W.K. is also apparently a hardcore Brony -- so much so, that he is set to speak at a My Little Pony convention in Strongsville, OH in September. The rocker will give the talk "In The Flesh: What Would Pinkie Pie Do?", which is described as a "motivational speech" addressing the Power Of Positive Partying (as embodied by the pink pony in question, and, we would imagine, Andrew W.K. himself). Here's the official description:

Party party party, she wants to have a party! Pinkie Pie is certainly a party animal, but what happens when you can't be a candy-colored pony in an Equestrian world? We break the fourth wall to present Andrew W.K., the artist behind hits "She Is Beautiful" and "Party Hard", to answer the dire question: What Would Pinkie Pie Do? Join us for a look into how to make your job as fun as your party, and your party as important as your job.

The artist behind "Party Hard" would indeed certainly know a lot about the topic...though I'm sure it may come as a surprise to some that he is also a "Friendship Is Magic" fan.

But this only goes to show the increasing acceptance being a male "My Little Pony" fan has recently received. Being a Brony is nothing to be ashamed of, a topic to hide from one's peers -- indeed, as I can only assume Andrew's speech will address, one should let their Brony flag fly proudly. Because Ponies. Know how to party.

The event, called Canterlot Gardens, will be held in Strongville, Ohio, September 28-30; register for the convention here.
