GWAR, creating havoc at the Ace of Spades, Sacramento, 19th October 2013

The pictures look surreal... because the show was just that. Surreal.

It was also bloody, irreverent, brash, nightmare-ish, scary, amazing, hilarious, loud, gross, heavy, trashy, totally-and-utterly bizarre... and whole buckets-of-blood lot of fun!

The audience was covered with blood and gore and various other bodily fluids and they loved it. That's a GWAR show for you. You bring some (or a lot) of it back home with you. (It does wash off!)

The costumes are incredible. I just wonder how the heck they wear them and don't sweat to death and still manage to play and make a more-than-decent sound. Great job guys!

Oh! And here's an idea: why not have GWAR perform the half-time show at the 2015 Superbowl? You like that idea? Click here to sign the petition!
