A full run-down of his events and descriptions follows after the jump. Andrew’s appearances during next week’s CMJ Marathon come on the heels of his shocking performance at David Blaine’s Ultrabook Experience performance, Electrified, last Sunday (October 7th).

Outlets such as Rolling Stone, SPIN, Pitchfork and many others covered Andrew’s performance, while viewers around the world watched via live stream online.
