Gwar-B-Q Details

We received the following update about the upcoming Gwar-B-Q: The 2nd Annual Gwar-B-Q will ACTUALLY be on Sep. 17th, 2011, not Aug. 27th as previously advertised. It will be held at Hadad's Water Park in lovely Richmond, VA.

The standard ticket price will be 20 bucks, with all kinds of cool extras and discounts. That includes all of the events and especially the bands!

And that is this year's biggest news-because this year, for the very first time, GWAR is playing their own GWAR-B-Q But almost as cool as that (and for some people a lot more so) is the big reunion of Richmond's own KEPONE for one very special show.

Kepone features Mike Bishop on bass and vocals, and any GWAR fan worth his/her ass gas will recognize that name as the guy behind the original Beefcake the Mighty. In fact every member of Kepone (Ed Trask on drums, Tim Harriss on guitar) played in GWAR at one time or another. Kepone made some great albums for Touch and Go and toured internationally before breaking into a slew of other projects in 2003. We are totally stoked that they are bringing it back for the GWAR-B-Q.

Also on the bill after a conspicuous absence from last year's GWAR-B-Q is D.B.X. The band, made up of GWAR members Dave Brockie (bass/vocals), Mike Derks (guitar), and Brad Roberts (drums). Always bringing forth a bit of peculiar mayhem, as their repertoire draws upon the vast song stockpile of every Slave Pit band ever, you can never be sure what you might hear next, be it a classic GWAR tune like "Fishf**k" or simply the sound of Brockie vomiting on his shoes.

But DBX isn't the only band that sports current GWAR members, as this year also sees the return of GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot's MENSREA to the GWAR-B-Q stage. What is even more awesome is the fact that for the first time since the ancient beginnings of the GWAR-B-Q, they actually have a stage to return to!

Richmond Hardcore legends White Cross lead a group of other bands whose ranks are still being filled and tailored to ensure that YOU, the loyal Slave Pit enthusiast, have the optimum rock experience! Stay tuned for continuing developments!
