Free Crack-A-Thon Kick Off Party Announced
In case you have been away panning for marmalade in the lower Congo--The CRACK-A-THON is GWAR's free webTV show, being broadcast on April 16th-17th, from 7pm-12am, live from the MF Gallery in lovely Brooklyn, New York. Host Oderus Urungus and his co-host, Balsac the Jaws of Death, will be joined by a star-studded list of celebrity (well, sort of...) guests, including Hatebreed lead singer Jamey Jasta, party animal Andrew WK, and mop-wielding super-hero The Toxic Avenger! Completely supported by viewer contributions, viewers will be able to pledge funds via PayPal, in order to not only support Oderus' vicious crack habit, but also begin the domination of the internet through Slave Pit TV, GWAR's 24-7 webTV channel, debuting this year if you give them enough money!
The madness begins April 10th with a free party and "Slave Print" art show. Gallery owner and GWAR-activist Martina Secondo explains... "MF Gallery is proud to announce the release of a brand new series of limited edition art prints created by the GWAR / Slave Pit artists. Contrary to popular belief, Intergalactic Space Monsters GWAR are actually made up of a team of artists from Virginia. These artists, working out of The Slave Pit in Richmond, create and build all of GWAR's props and costumes, but they
She continued- "After exhaustive review, we have selected the best works by GWAR / Slave Pit artists such as Dave Brockie, Bob Gorman, Matt Maguire, and Don Drakulich, to create a limited edition set of prints, exclusively for sale at MF Gallery and online through www.MFgallery.net."
The opening party, on Saturday April 10th from 7-10 pm, will be the first chance ever to see and buy these GWAR Slave Prints. Many of the artists will be present to meet the fans and sign the prints. Additionally, this party will be one of the last chances to reserve a seat for the CRACK-A-THON performances, as seats are going fast. Bask in the presence of living gods, enjoy the fine Slave Print art, and enjoy some very special musical performances by Satanic Superhero Robots, DETHRACE and Chippy the Homeless Chippopotamus, another side project of GWAR's front man Dave Brockie.
One more time--the CRACK-A-THON is a brand new piece of performance art: GWAR's very own variety show- a twisted version of The Jerry Lewis MS Telethon or the Carol Burnett Show, except with crack...lots of crack. It will be hosted by Oderus Urungus and co-hosted by Balsac The Jaws Of Death. CRACK-A-THON will feature interviews with celebrities from the art and music world, (Such as Andrew W.K., Jamey Jasta, frontman of the punk-metal band Hatebreed and more recently Kingdom of Sorrow, Lloyd Kaufman of Troma, the legendary Jimmy Gestapo from the band Murphy's Law, Mecronos from the band DETHRACE, NYC artists Joe Simko and Tara McPherson and many many more!) Grand Guignol-style skits, footage of Oderus roaming the streets of NYC, GWAR P.S.A.'s and more depravity as Oderus begs for your money to help pay off his gigantic crack bill! The CRACK-A-THON will be broadcast online for FREE at www.crackathon.tv
