GWAR-BQ
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.
lettherebegwar

 

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!

gwarcigar
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!

EVENTS, RULES, COSTUME CONTEST, SPEW Olympics, and FAQ

That’s right, your lords and masters GWAR announced today that all humans who show up at this year’s GWAR-B-Q are guaranteed an orgasm. Of course, for most of you this will amount to a pathetic dribble in your already stained underpants as you die at the hands of GWAR, but all sales are final!

This year’s GWAR B-Q is a three day celebration of all things GWAR marking the band’s 30th year with a weekend long Birthday Bash on August 14th, 15th and 16th. As in years past, GWAR-B-Q is more than a rock concert, think of it as a field day of hatred and death, with a full program of special events and attractions designed to lure humans to their deaths.

spewolympics

This year will see the return of the “Spew-O-Lympics”, a semi-aquatic-flail-fest of despair! Wanna-be contestants are required to submit a short essay on why they feel they should be considered to participate in this hallowed event. Longer than 200 words ensures immediate disqualification (and dismemberment). The band themselves will read these essays while taking a dump, and judge the top selections. Find out how to enter at https://www.facebook.com/SpewOlympics. The winner goes home with a Blakhart BKT6FR guitar!!

skate

Also returning this year is the GWAR-B-Q, Rolling Wheels of Death Skate Park. In an effort to bump up the number of life altering casualties, GWAR has added a second half pipe that is 6’ tall and 12’ wide with a 7’ transition.  Remember you must be 18 to enter the park and will have to sign a waiver to be able to participate.

fbm

The insane freaks from the FBM Bike Co. will also be back again with multiple bike ramps to propel hapless Bohabs high into the air, just to come crashing down into the inky depths of Hadad’s Lake.

cryptofchaos

Prepare to visit the “Crypt of Chaos”, the GWAR-themed horror experience! Combining Slave Pit’s demented artistry and the pedigree of Tim Bunch’s House of Horrors. This will be one of the sickest, most terrifying experiences of your brief and miserable life. Once inside, you will beg for release, and if you are lucky enough to survive, you will emerge a bloody, broken shell of your former self. Enter at your own risk!

bohabs

Also, for the first time in its sordid history, the 6th annual GWAR B-Q will host a GWARRIOR Costume Contest! We all know GWAR doesn’t wear costumes, but they encourage you to show up to the event wearing the most outrageous and deranged costume you can come up with for the chance to win a variety of excellent prizes including a BKT6FR GUITAR from BLAKHART, tons of SWAG from MONSTER and a GWAR B-Q skate deck. The winner will also be presented live on stage in front of the festival crowd. The contest takes place on the Scumdog Stage and will be judged by Tony Foresta of local thrash metal masters, Municipal Waste. More info will be announced soon in the events section at www.gwarbq.com
