In what will go down as a very emotional weekend for GWAR fans everywhere, the remaining members have revealed the details for the 2014 GWAR-B-Q, and it’s going to be something special! As we all know, Dave Brockie passed away earlier this year, and they’ve finally revealed details for the public memorial for fans to pay their final respects to one of the greats of our time. The memorial will take place on August 15th from 4pm-7pm at the Hadad’s Lake In Richmond, VA, and as the band states: “Fans, friends, family and bohabs will have the opportunity to pay their respects, as they drunkenly toast with a Gwar Beer in one hand, while wearing the commemorative Dave Brockie Fund vomit stained t-shirt as Oderus Urungus is set ablaze in a Viking Funeral Pyre on the lake.”
The Fifth Annual GWAR-B-Q will take the day after with an amazing lineup as well! Confirmed bands so far include Body Count, Hatebreed, Meatmen, Revocation, Iron Reagan, Goatwhore, Noisem, Kepone, Loincloth, Occultist Fuckface Unstoppable and Eat The Turnbuckle. So not only can you pay tribute to Oderus, but you can follow it up with an amazing day of metal in Richmond! If that doesn’t get you excited enough, here’s the official press release: “There is plenty more filthy fun to overload your senses, leaving you bloated, basted, and completely broke. There will be more meat than ever, boatloads of “GWAR-B-Q” sauce to slather all over it, GWAR’s new beer “Killsner “ to wash it down your bottomless and gaping feed-hole, as well as an infinite number of port-o-john vomitorium kissing booths for full body evacuation. Just like last year, the affair will be held at the only venue capable of handling such a stupendous event, the legendary Hadad’s Lake!”
