Initially scheduled for August 27—and rescheduled because the organizers “changed our fucking minds, according to a press release—this year’s GWAR-B-Q will be held September 17 at Hadad’s Water Park in Richmond, VA. That’s right, a water park.
“Anybody familiar with the place already knows it’s the perfect place for a GWAR-B-Q. GWAR fans can get drunk in the hot sun, and then drown in one of the many pools. It’s gonna be the last blow-out of the summer and the biggest GWAR-B-Q yet,” said Dave Brockie of the Slave Pit’s decision to hold the event at Hadad’s.
This year marks a significant milestone in the short history of the annual GWAR-B-Q, as GWAR will actually be playing the event for the first time. Other artists playing the event include KEPONE, Touch and Go and DBX.
The full lineup is as follows:
Touch and Go
But that’s not all. Check out some special events scheduled for the GWAR-B-Q below:
American A-hole – Karaoke contest, hosted by Sleazy P. Martini, and judged by actual celebrities! See drunken idiots compete for valuably worthless prizes!
Spew-O-Lympics/ Bloody T-Shirt Contest – Featuring models from GwarGurlz.com and other chicks with tits. Contestants compete in athletic events while being hosed down by GWAR’s biledrivers and pelted with garbage from a jeering crowd. Fun!
Oderus Kissing Booth – Get savagely violated by your favorite undead bestial overlord, Oderus Urungus, all in the privacy of a baking-hot plywood box-and pay money to do so!
Tickets start at $20 via the band’s site and are $25 at the door. Deluxe tickets ($30) include entry into all performances and a GWAR-B-Q t-shirt. Premium tickets go for $75 and include passes for all performances, a t-shirt, a DVD, VIP pass and an opportunity to get eaten by the legendary World Maggot.
