Original GWAR Bassist To Return For ‘GWAR-B-Q’ Set

Posted by on July 29, 2011

GWAR will be holding the second annual GWAR-B-Q this coming September in Richmond, VA. The day promises to be filled with two stages of music, crap loads of grilled meat, necrotic filth, and most likely a crap load of jizz (both human and non-human we expect). In other words, everything you’d hope for from a GWAR festival.

As if the all day festival wasn’t special enough (seriously, name us one other festival that has the Spew-O-Lympic’s or a bloody t-shirt contest?), the band announced that they will be joined onstage by former bassist Mike Bishop. The original Beefcake The Mighty will join GWAR for a special set of songs from the Scumdogs era before the current incarnation of the band finishes the set. Bishop played the role from 1987 to 1993, and again briefly from 1998 to 1999. Currently playing the role of Beefcake is Casey Orr, who has also been in and out of the band since first replacing Bishop.

The 2nd annual GWAR-B-Q will be held on September 17 at Hadad’s Lake in Richmond, VA. You can check out the lineup, which also includes Darkest Hour, down below. More information about the festival and about purchasing tickets can be read over at GWAR.net.  And if you still aren’t convinced that the GWAR-B-Q will be an event you don’t want to miss, check out the commercial after the jump.
