The 5th Annual GWAR B-Q – GWAR’s saucy, sinful summer celebration-draws ever closer! And good reasons to make the trek to Hadad’s Lake (7900 Osborne Turnpike, Richmond, VA 23231) www.hadadslake.com on Saturday, August 16th keep multiplying. We bestow upon you the following new reasons to attend: The pants wetting horror of the Crypt of Chaos, GWAR’s own haunted house, and two more celebrity guests. And to keep your facts straight, we’re including a comprehensive GWAR B-Q FAQ Bohab Guide.
GWAR! Haunted! House! Those three words should get your heart racing! The GWAR B-Q will feature the Crypt of Chaos, the first-ever GWAR-themed horror experience! Combining Slave Pit’s demented artistry and the pedigree of Tim Bunch’s House of Horrors, this will be a sicker, scarier event than your wildest nightmares can imagine! You will beg for release and emerge a bloody, broken shell of your former self. That is, if you have the guts to enter…
GWAR recently announced that Jello Biafra will preside over the Dave Brockie/Oderus Urungus Memorial (from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday, August 15th). He will share those duties with two other special guests: Randy Blythe of Lamb of God and Holliston TV series creator Adam Green. The event, also taking place at Hadad’s Lake, is FREE to the public. Show up to drink GWAR Beer and unleash a primal scream to pay tribute to Oderus as he journeys to Valhalla and beyond.
As an added bonus, we’ve included the GWAR B-Q FAQ BOHAB GUIDE – an all-encompassing checklist to ensure every Bohab’s maximum pleasure while attending the legendary GWAR B-Q. Of course, if you don’t want your hand held, almost all answers may be found at GWARBQ.com. All Bohabs should pay particular attention to the handy FAQ at https://gwarbq.com/faq.

These guys – like Enemy Ink, makers of the official 5th Annual GWAR B-Q T-shirt, and revolutionary label METAL BLADE RECORDS – were cool enough to help us put together the wildest GWAR B-Q yet. Of course, we’d rather take all the credit ourselves. https://gwarbq.com/sponsors
