It was a pleasant autumn night for a Metal concert in Calgary. Arriving early-ish wanting to see Battlecross I was mildly disappointed but not surprised to see a low turnout. More on this later.

GWAR Debut New Products At GWAR B-Q, Vendors Announced, Brutal Brunch Details Revealed

August 13th, 2015

yE6W0vHqBAzzgZbHgaIppLpmxcFZGM9oWqhkTdgJ1zWsw_FL4krV6-T9TFgi8B4RDCC44g=s2048

The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q is set for this weekend and GWAR themselves have promised to deliver four new amazing products for humanity to choke on.

yBVz9teaEp7efu6pSIthVmYy7b6dYe1NSSXqWd3BVI42-JDs_sqlbv5ZdhsBxzCjs38scQ=s2048
First, the highly anticipated “Let There Be GWAR” book will be available for the first time to the masses of Bohabs that know how to read. (Don’t worry there are plenty of pictures, so even the Bohabs that can’t read can still enjoy it too.)  “Let There Be GWAR”  is a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of GWAR.  This 360 page oversized hardcover book is chock full of fascinating first-hand accounts and rare, never-before-seen photographs. The book follows the band from the mid-1980s, known in GWAR lore as the “Dim Time,” when the group came together at a derelict dairy building in Richmond, Virginia, through the 1990s and 2000s, when the band spread across the face of the planet like a plague.  It’s a must have for all Bohabs, even the illiterate ones.

BeerWeb

What is a GWAR B-Q without alcohol?  It would still be a festival but not as fun!  This year the Scumdogs debut the exclusive Oderus Ale.  It’s GWAR’s legendary beer and it’s back by popular demand. These brews always sell out at the GWAR B-Q! For the third year running, Cigar City Brewery of Tampa FL. has crafted a very special tribute brew, Oderus Ale, to the legendary Scumdog! This beer is bold, strong, and drunk just like the ultimate Scumdog warrior it’s named after. Hail ODERUS!!!

GBQhotsauce

And this one is just for you, Bohabs, fires of hell for you to put in your mouth, ’cause life’s too short for bland food!  GWAR is also pleased to debut their Bohabanero Sauce.  This sauce is not for wimps but it doesn’t sacrifice flavor for heat’s sake. Affectionately named after GWAR’s faithful followers, the Bohabs, this hot sauce brings the smack of habanero peppers and the subtle sweetness of carrots in a unique combination! If you crave equal parts pleasure and pain, Bohabanero Sauce is what you’ve been seeking and you can try it for the first time at the GWAR B-Q!

FullSizeRender

The one and only CiGWARs are returning to this year’s GWAR B-Q. CiGWAR No.2 is a full bodied smoke with a spicy yet smooth finish. These puros are handcrafted by Pete Johnson of Tatuaje at My Father’s Cigar factory in Nicaragua, available at the GWAR B-Q, and sold exclusively by Havana Connections with five locations in the Richmond and Williamsburg areas. Come smoke a CiGWAR in the great outdoors at Hadad’s Lake during the 6th annual GWAR B-Q.

In addition to GWAR’s Oderus Ale,CiGWARs and BohabaneroSauce, and the new book, there will be a sea of vendors that will be slinging grub and peddling their wares for you human scum to buy.

Capping off this three day festival of music, debauchery and mayhem is the inaugural Brutal Brunch.  What is the Brutal Brunch?  It’s now the official closing party of the GWAR B-Q and it is FREE and open to the public.  The event takes place from 2:00 – 6:00 PM at Abner Clay Park, across the street from the GWARbar located at 217 W Clay St, in the historic Jackson Ward District! The Brutal Brunch will feature live music from The Sawyer Family, Sarah White, and Richmond’s own Mag Bats.  This family friendly event (yes, GWAR can be nice and appeal to families sometimes) will showcase more local food and art vendors as GWAR has an ever growing soft spot for Richmond artists!  Bring a blanket or grab a chair there. Whatever you do, enjoy the day! The band will be mingling at this party with you human scum, giving you one more opportunity to worship your Lords and Masters and giving GWAR themselves the opportunity to say THANK YOU to GWAR B-Q weekend patrons, sponsors, and meaningless passers-by alike! We encourage you to end your weekend of mayhem and hangovers by hanging with us in the park, visiting GWARbar, and indulging in food and some Hair of the Dog once more before high tailing it out of beautiful Richmond… until next year!

Tickets are still available for purchase at http://gwarbq.com/buy-tickets. Online GWAR B-Q ticket sales end Friday night Aug 14th at 8pm. So, save some money on the advanced online ticket price. B4BQ tickets for Friday Aug. 14th at the National are available at http://tinyurl.com/B4BQTIX.  Tickets will still be available at the gates for both shows, the B4BQ and the GWAR B-Q.

GWAR Announces “30 Years of Total World Domination Tour”

April 28th, 2015

CJ2zTKC-1
30 years have passed since GWAR awoke from the prison of their Antarctic slumber in 1985. Since that time, the band has used broadswords and guitars to shape the music and culture of mankind. 30 years later, the world sucks more than it ever has, and humans have GWAR to thank!  Three decades of bloodlust, throttling the life from humanity, and perverting the human imagination have left no doubt that GWAR rules supreme!

GWARbar is OPEN!

January 17th, 2015

2r7jVA
With only 4 hours to spare, GWAR made good on Oderus Urungus’ promise to open the GWARbar in 2014 when they smashed down the doors to 217 W. Clay St. Richmond, Virginia, in the historic Jackson Ward arts district, on New Year’s Eve 2014. The ensuing party has yet to die down as GWAR fans, foodies and even neighborhood families revel in this brilliant new addition to the Virginia restaurant scene.

The GWARbar makes real the longtime fantasy of GWAR, the most brutal rock band in history, to open a restaurant and bar worthy of their name. The project was spurred by Jonathan Staples of James River Distillery and their departed lead singer, Dave Brockie. Along with restaurant partner Travis Croxton of Rappahannock, GWARbar’s mission is to bring “intergalactic junk food” to citizens of Richmond, Virginia and visiting GWAR fans from around the universe. The restaurant’s ambience balances beauty and brutality in the band’s trademark style, brought to life with the design and construction genius of Barry Griffin at Griffin Customs.

mV0Ymq

Patrons of GWARbar will enjoy sipping signature drinks out of a specially designed GWAR Tiki mug. Founder and owner, Holden Westland of Southern California’s Tiki Farm, the world’s largest manufacturer of Tiki mugs, has worked with GWAR to create a Tiki based on the band’s characteristic visual style. This GWAR Tiki will be highly collectible, and is available exclusively at the GWARbar.

Michael Derks, GWAR guitarist, and the driving force behind GWARbar reports, “The thing most people are surprised about is just how damn good the food is. Head chef Jeremy Dutra (drummer for Richmond’s own US Bastards) has made my vision of gourmet junk food rock! With items like our Scumdogs (house made sausages) and McDuckets (a duck, chicken, cheese and truffle nugget) we are turning your guilty pleasures into gastronomic masterpieces!”

Gwar Eternal Tour 2014

with Corrosion of Conformity and American Sharks

November 6, 2014

Photos & Review Monika Deviat

The Gwar Eternal Tour is just that, the continuation of GWAR and a demonstration that they can keep the story and music going – perhaps for the “next thousand years”.  Gwar is soldiering on after their bandleader and vocalist Dave Brockie, who played Oderus Urungus, sadly passed away after an accidental heroin overdose in March 2014. With Oderus missing from their ranks the scumdogs have joined forces with two new members, Blóthar and Vulvatron, who mysteriously appeared on stage one day through a time travelling device. On this tour Gwar is searching for their missing leader through North American cities and through time. American Sharks from Austin, Texas have been the opening act for the entire tour. Poland’s Decapitated acted as support for the first half of the tour and then were replaced by Corrosion of Conformity for the second half. On November 16, 2014 the tour rolled into Calgary, Alta., to slaughter the masses at MacEwan Hall.

Gwar – Interview with Beefcake the Mighty

The day before I experienced the Gwar Eternal Tour in Calgary Alta., I had the opportunity to speak to bassist Beefcake the Mighty while Gwar was in Spokane.  Or “Spo-cane” as he pronounced it, saying “It rhymes with cocaine”. The band is in the midst of a tour that journeys through an impressive number of North American cities. Gwar is soldiering on after their bandleader and vocalist Dave Brockie, who played Oderus Urungus, sadly passed away after an accidental heroin overdose in March 2014. With Oderus missing from their ranks the scumdogs have joined forces with two new members, Blóthar and Vulvatron, who mysteriously appeared on stage one day through a time travelling device. They now search for their leader through North American cities and through time. Beefcake tells us a bit about the tour and we of course discuss some aspects of killing humans.

Gwar – Interview with Vulvatron

Interview with Vulvatron of Gwar

Since Vulvatron appeared on stage with Gwar by travelling backwards in time, I have realized how extremely pathetic our understanding of physics is here on Earth. If you have been paying attention to interviews and press releases regarding this new member of Gwar from the year 69000, you will know she is brilliant and that her knowledge of physics and engineering surpasses that of any human.

I was able to arrange an interview with Beefcake the Mighty about the current Gwar Eternal Tour which you can read here. But I had a different theme for the questions I wanted to ask Vulvatron. From her previous interactions with humans I knew she had a sharp mind and wit and some of her comments about herself piqued my scientific curiosity. I could not get away from my day job of uselessly pushing buttons, occasionally writing some combination of numbers and Greek letters into meaningless patterns and looking at pretty colored lines on grids to set up a phone call with Vulvatron on her tour schedule. However, she agreed to answer a few of my science related questions via email.

GWAR Eternal Tour Honors Lost Leader Oderus Urungus and Introduces New Scumdogs

October 5th, 2014

The Scumdogs of the Universe are sharpening their axes and stoking the fires of their great war engines in preparation for the fall 2014 GWAR Eternal Tour. Global leaders had hoped the bouts of terror accompanying GWAR‘s annual rampages would finally come to an end with the passing of the group’s monstrous captain, Oderus Urungus. But tonight politicians, religious leaders, and citizens around the world are asking, “Why?! Why won’t GWAR just leave the Earth in peace?”

The band’s toothsome guitarist, BalSac the Jaws of Death had this to say: “Something is wrong, unspeakably wrong. It feels as if the very fabric of reality has been ripped from belly to taint. And it all centers around Oderus’ disappearance. One moment, life is fantastic, as we celebrate the near sinking of Japan as a result of our recent journey across the Pacific; and the next, he is just gone. Suddenly the world is a dark, vile place with hordes of trolls biting at my hooves and daring to spit poison in my face. There is a great evil behind this, and I will not rest until I know what has become of my brother!

New Female GWAR Member, Vulvatron’s First Interview Posted

September 24th, 2014
GWAR - Vultvatron

GWAR – Vultvatron

Last week, GWAR announced they had officially added not just one new member in Blothar, but a second, female member in Vulvatron. When we learned of this development, we immediately contacted GWAR’s intergalactic publicist to get us on the horn with this new vixen of torment. We learn about Vulvatron’s origins and how she became one of the scumdogs of the universe. Here is a sample:

Why do you think it took GWAR so long to add another female member?
GWAR enjoyed giving you humans blue balls for many years.

Which member of GWAR did you sleep with to get the gig?
Vulvatron’s sexual prowess is far superior, and although I slept with the entire band and management at the same time, they were not able to keep up. My sexual functions are far too advanced to mate with most primitive forms.

Does sexism exist in GWAR? Are you only entitled to 70% of the crack compared to male members?
I consumed the entire crack rider, and then needed a further crack buyout for lunch, dinner, and aftershow. GWAR is an extremely sexist band, we all believe in having all of the sex all the time.
