A little last minute considering that the event is to take place in two days, but GWAR-B-Q has been moved to a new venue due to complications securing the correct permits and licenses. The show was originally going to take place at Hadad’s Water Park, but now will be at Richmond, Virginia’s National Theater.
GWAR-B-Q planner Dave Brockie on the change-up:
“We feel we have been treated in an unjust manner. There have been music festivals for years in Henrico County with no problem OR licenses. We jumped through hoops, hired cops, made safety plans…and at the last second they chose not to give us the permits.”
“I woke up today and heard this. I was just about to put a bullet through my head when we got a call from the National Theater. They had originally booked some loser from “America’s Got Talent”, but he cancelled…so the National saved the day for us and agreed to open their doors to the event. As you read this we are scrambling madly to accommodate all of the acts and events we had planned, and present the full spectacle of the GWAR-B-Q.”
Not only will you be able to get drunk and pig the fuck out with GWAR, but you will also get to see a badass show featuring Darkest Hour, re-united Kepone, and The Argonauts, which will be their debut, and, of course, GWAR! Rabb Himself and Don Jamison will serve as judges for the cook-off, and Jamison is planning on doing his comedy set as well. Oh yeah, D. Randall fucking Blythe will be the host, so you know it's on!
