Presented once again by Slave Pit Inc. and sponsored by Ring Dog Rescue (http://ringdogrescue.org), The 5th Annual GWAR-B-Q and Dave Brockie Memorial will certainly go down in history as one of the most significant events to happen in Richmond since the Civil War.
In a celebration of the life of David Murray Brockie, a special memorial event will be held FREE to the public from 4:00 PM -7:00 PM ONLY on Aug 15, 2014 at Hadad’s Lake (located at 7900 Osborne Turnpike Richmond, VA 23231). Fans, friends, family and bohabs will have the opportunity to pay their respects, as they drunkenly toast with a GWAR Beer in one hand, while wearing the commemorative Dave Brockie Fund vomit stained t-shirt as Oderus Urungus is set ablaze in a Viking Funeral Pyre on the lake.
In keeping with the tradition of past GWAR-B-Q’s, Slave Pit Inc. has revealed the first bands confirmed for the event. The GWAR-B-Q will feature the heaviest, and most legendary line up of bands that the metal and punk scenes have to offer. Heavyweights such as Hatebreed, hometown heroes Kepone, with former GWAR member Beefcake, the infamous Meatmen, featuring the Dutch Hercules, Tesco Vee and a very special appearance by the Original Gangsters, Body Count, where TV executives were bribed and beaten to get Ice-T off the set of Law and Order SVU.

“The magnitude of heavy bone crushing acts at this year’s GWAR-B-Q is enough to …aahhh …crush bone” said Bonesnapper, GWAR’s body guard.
And if that’s not enough, there is plenty more filthy fun to overload your senses, leaving you bloated, basted, and completely broke. There will be more meat than ever, boatloads of “GWAR-B-Q” sauce to slather all over it, GWAR’s new beer “Killsner” to wash it down your bottomless and gaping feed-hole, as well as an infinite number of port-o-john vomitorium kissing booths for full body evacuation. Just like last year, the affair will be held at the only venue capable of handling such a stupendous event, the legendary Hadad’s Lake.

As our beloved bohabs would come to expect, the Slave Pit has yet again produced its customary GWAR-B-Q commercial commemorating the beastly birthday of the 5th Annual GWAR-B-Q. This year’s clip heavily features Oderus Urungus’ final film performance. Although, Oderus will not be there physically, his spirit will reign over the event.
Hail Oderus! View the commercial HERE.

Today GWAR continues in their tradition of reuniting classic bands to play at the GWAR-B-Q, with the addition of the X-Cops! That’s right, the original lineup featuring Lt. Louie Scrapinetti (Mike Derks), Cadet Billy Club (Mike Dunn), Patrolman Cobb Knobbler (Dave Brockie), Sgt. Al Depantsia (Pete Lee), Sherriff Tubb Tucker (Casey Orr), Mountain Bike Officer Biff Buff (Brad Roberts), Sgt. Zypygski (Bob Gorman), and Detective Philip McRevis (Dave Musel) are reuniting for one night only at this year’s GWAR-B-Q! This will serve as the bands first show since 1996.
X-Cops’s bass “man” Cobb Knobbler commented on the reunion of the band:
“I am excited to get the boys together for one last gig, especially since I have become a member of the Westboro Baptist Church.”
Sherriff Tubb Tucker Motherfucker of All Motherfuckers added:
“Alright you lowlife dirtbags, listen up! X-Cops have been hired on as crowd control for the 4th annual GWAR-B-Q. I’m here to tell all of you faggot punks that we will be in full force to put the beat down on any of you little shits that step out of line! That’s right! After years of deep cover, the original X-Cops team has been reassembled to make sure there’s no bullshit at this fine event. We will be on hand to confiscate all your drugs, accept donations to our policeman’s balls, and thoroughly pat down your girlfriends. So bring drugs, money, and women! As you were.”
Three more bands have been added to the GWAR-B-Q lineup. Fresh off their tour with GWAR, Wilson and Warbeast will be making their first GWAR-B-Q appearance. Metal Blade Records artist Battlecross have been confirmed as well. Rumor has it that there are still huge special guests to be announced. Stay tuned to http://www.gwarbq.com for the latest info.
Already confirmed for the GWAR-B-Q are local favorites and international thrashers Municipal Waste will provide main support to the mighty GWAR, and in turn will be supported by a plethora of devastating acts like Corrosion of Conformity, Pig Destroyer, Cannabis Corpse, Loincloth, Kung-Fu Dykes and many more. Once again Hadad’s will host not one but TWO stages which will be packed with bands all day…and finally there are rumors of a yet-to-be-announced act that will put this year’s GWAR-B-Q 2013 completely over the top!
The event is scheduled to take place Saturday August 17, 2013 at Hadad’s Water Park in Richmond, VA, located at 7900 Osbourne Turnpike. Doors will open at 10:00 AM and the first band will hit the stage at 11:00 AM. For more information be sure to visit: http://gwarbq.com/.
Quoth Oderus, straight from his holiday in Stalingrad, “Holy hate-balls, all these bands are playing at our GWAR-B-Q? And we have our own GWAR-B-Q sauce, that actually tastes good? And we will be premiering our new beer, Impaled Ale? I think this is more fun than the humans deserve! Now I am back to driving tanks into the river! See you there, fuckers!”
