    GWAR's GWAR-B-Q will carry on as planned, despite the death of band leader Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus earlier this year. He'd have wanted it this way.

    The fifth annual gathering of meat, metal and mayhem will take place on Saturday, August 16 at Hadad's Lake in Richmond, Virginia. Scientists work around the clock to translate the high-pitched chatter of the mutant penguin hoard as they approach landfall.

    Conflicting reports indicate that GWAR's performance will be lead by none other than original recipe Beefcake the Mighty aka Mike Bishop or quite possibly it was misinterpreted as the Colonel's original chicken recipe. Who knows? Be there to find out for yourself as this historic metal event unfolds.

    Original Scumdog members will descend on the GWAR B-Q to bear witness to a Viking funeral for Oderus Urungus, whose form will burn upon the SS Boat as he makes his journey back to Valhalla and beyond. This public memorial will be held from 4 to 7PM on Friday, August 15 at Hadad's Lake in Richmond and is open to even the lowliest of bohabs.

    How do I get tickets, you ask? Tickets will be sold exclusively on the GWAR B-Q website, which is at gwarbq.com, beginning June 6.

    Anyone plan to celebrate GWAR at the GWAR-B-Q?
