GWAR's annual GWAR-B-Q, now in its fourth glorious year, will take place at Hadad's Water Park in Richmond, Virginia. The fun will be unleashed on Saturday, Aug. 17. Doors open at 10AM, with the first band to commandeer the stage at 11AM. Municipal Waste, Corrosion of Conformity, Pig Destroyer, Cannabis Corpse, Loincloth, and our personal faves, Kung-Fu Dykes, are set to perform, among others to be announced at a later date.
"Once again we blow the horn of war and set into motion the gears that grind us towards the greatest Gwar-B-Q yet," said Oderus Urungus, the cod piece behind GWAR. "We will not only be rockin' like Dokken and slippin' the cock in, but we will shoving a wealth of GWAR products down your throat...not only our new Gwar-B-Q sauce, but our very own beer, Impaled Ale! Eat and drink yourself into a diabetic stupor, then puke it all up in the slam pit! It's gonna fucking rule!"
