GWAR is turning 30 and wants everyone at their birthday party – which has just been extended to a 3-day event spanning August 14-16 in Richmond, VA.
GWAR-B-Q is an annual celebration thrown by GWAR for fans of GWAR featuring musical performances along with lots of art and food. Currently announced performers to span the event’s three stages include The Descendents, Down, The Dickies, MC Chris, Goatwhore, Dead Earth Politics and RPG. More bands will be announced soon, as well as ticket prices and on-sale dates.
The weekend starts off on August 14th at the kick-off party, cleverly called the B4BQ. This event takes place in two different Richmond venues, The National and The Broadberry. Fans can hit up The Brutal Brunch to wrap up the fun on August 16th at the newly opened GWARbar.
The main event is sandwiched in the middle on Saturday, August 15th at Hadad’s Lake. If Richmond, VA is a hike for you but you don’t want to miss out, you can receive discounts on weekend lodging through GWAR’s partner hotels in Richmond.
As if this wasn’t awesome enough, some proceeds from GWAR-B-Q go to Ring Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization dedicated to the safety and preservation of pitbulls and other dogs.
