Well, well, well,
How in the hell do I begin to describe what went on last night at the old Warfield Theatre. It was completely insane and I loved every minute of it. Sometimes you just got to step out side the box and do something different. Well let me tell you last night Doogles and myself did just exactly that. What a freak show. Let's see... They skewed a cop with a pig mask, they had a guy dressed as hitler that jerked his oversized cock off until it spewed as Doogs put it "Cock Juice" all over the crowd. There were several beheadings with lots of blood and other fluids squirting all over the place. They even scalped a George Bush character. Near the end the devil made a appearance himself. He was wearing a large star of david around his neck. Who know the devil was Jewish? Then he proceeded to battle it out with this huge dinosaur. It ended with the devil getting his head bitten off. I'm sure once Doogs reads this he'll have more to say about it as well. All in all it was a crazy good time. I even managed to get home without any "goo" on me unlike our friend Jessie which took full advantage of the front row and was covered from head to toe but smiling none the less. Yeah it was a metal show and that might not interest some but the theatrics were well worth it. If you have ever wondered what this band is all about go see this tour if it comes your way. You won't be disappointed. Oh yeah and bring a poncho or something to keep you dry. You'll thank me later.
I went to that show not knowing entirely what to expect, but I did expect to be offended.
So when the band came out with GIANT phalluses & 2 sets of testicles (4 balls) hanging down past their knees, I kinda giggled. It wasn't until they shoved the guitar up the Piggie's (cop's) ass, which erupted in a giant explosion of blood that I actually got offended. And then they shoved that guitar all the way through him so it came out of his mouth. Then they picked him up, skewered by that "guitar neck" (which by this point was a prop) and carried him away to the roasting, all the while blood spewing everywhere.
I wasn't expecting all the naked band butts. (They were wearing black thongs, and their butts were the only "skin" we could see that wasn't monster). I wasn't expecting all the pee-pees, either. There were a lot of dicks there, and I'm not talking about the guys in the audience.
I didn't expect the Devil to be Jewish, and I absolutely couldn't believe it when a great big dang old Tyrannosaurus Rex walked onto the stage and beheaded the Devil.
In a night of many expectations, they still blew my mind with the visuals.
The music? Was there any music? Oh, yeah! Now that I think of it, there was a heavy metal band on stage! They were good, too, but they were completely dwarfed by their stage presence and stage show.
I've never been to GWAR before. I don't think any of the group Hedspace & I were hanging with had been before. Reading the emails they're sending out today, I think they got frightened. Me? I'll never miss another GWAR show so long as they continue touring.
You mean you guys didn't enter the "Sacrifice Your Sister to Gwar" contest in the early 90's for the free t-shirt?
Nice! lol. . .
Oh yeah I forgot to mention the Pope showing up as well as the oversized crack rock.
Still trying to process it all. I'm sure I'll remember more later.
Yeah, I've remembered a few more things, too, like the person (Bush?) they had strung up. First they chopped off his legs, then his arms. Then they skinned him so all his guts were hanging out. They pulled on those guts, and one "musician" even collected the blood shooting off and poured it all over himself, into his mouth & down his throat.
Nice reviews, guys. I saw Gwar over ten years ago and they did the whole dick spew then chop off dick and blood spew thing then too! It was at the old club here called Graffiti. They had the entire placed line in plastic wrap to prevent a mess but that really didn't work.
Oh! I just remembered the penis rifle. It was this big machine gun type thingy that they wheeled out onto the stage before unleashing it's inner goo on the audience.
Geez, when I saw these guys years ago it was at the original Cat's Cradle in Chapel Hill, and now they've worked up to the Gwarfield. There is nothing like a Gwar concert
>>>There is nothing like a Gwar concert
You can say that again!!!!
Too funny, It should have said that on the marquee out front..... lol
Gwarfield! I can't believe I let that one get past w/out thinking it up myself! Good one, Buncombe...
wow and i thought my trip to a korn show years ago was pushin it.... guess i gotta go
BRING BACK THE BOMB!!
Gwar is the shit. Even if they did kill Garcia on stage.
One of my brother in law's greatest moments in his life was being one of the people sacrificed on stage during a Gwar concert.
Remember going to visit Lady SI the day after and he had his t-shirt hanging on the clothesline outside drying- hadn't washed it. Just wanted it to dry "as is" so that he could keep it as a memento of such an occasion.
>>>Gwar is the shit. Even if they did kill Garcia on stage.
The last time I saw them was a month or so after Garcia passed on. The Meatmen opened up and were giving away stickers that read "I Killed Jerry Garcia."
>>>Gwarfield! I can't believe I let that one get past w/out thinking it up myself! Good one, Buncombe...
I can't claim complete credit: in the past I've seen it called that in ads for Gwar shows at the, er, Warfield
Damn, where's the photos, Doogels?!!! Guess they don't allow cameras in for this show, huh? Too bad.
