Gwar

Preparations for GWAR's CRACK-A-THON continue as another round of celebrity-esque guests have been announced. Sources revealed that host Oderus Urungus will be joined by legendary weirdo, filmmaker, and founder of Troma Films, Lloyd Kaufman, who will of course be accompanied by mutant mop-wielder and star of stage and screen, The Toxic Avenger. Also fresh on the block of unwitting victims/guests is New York artist Joe Simko and cyber-warlord Mecronos of the band Dethrace. These guests will be joining the first confirmed guest Andrew W.K. and the many other yet-to-be-confirmed sort of stars that are rapidly turning the CRACK-A-THON into the most fudge-packed event since the Buddy Ebsen roast!

All the fun starts on April 10th, when the MF Gallery in Brooklyn, N.Y. hosts the CRACK-A-THON kickoff party, which will feature an exhibit of prints of both classic GWAR art and other hideous visions created by some of the artists of Slave Pit Inc, the company responsible for bringing the world GWAR, the X-Cops, and numerous other side projects to ridiculous to mention in this press release. This print series is being created exclusively for MF Gallery and will also be available for purchase online at MFGallery.net. The evening shall be capped off with the music of Mecronos' band, Dethrace, and homeless animal rights activist and avowed organ-grinder Chippy the Chippopotamus!

All of this is just a lead-up to the actual First Annual (even though that is impossible) GWAR CRACK-A-THON, Oderus Urungus' desperate attempt to raise funds to pay off the heaping crack-debt he owes to underground mogul Sleazy P. Martini. Starting at 7:00 pm on April 16th, anyone with internet access will be able to witness all of the shenanigans, via a live broadcast from the MF Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. For those of you in the area, reserve your seats NOW to be in the live studio audience with a ten-dollar pledge!

One of Gwar's announced Crack-a-thon guests, Andrew WK, actually played right before them at MWTX on Saturday, March 20th. For Andrew, that performance was just an hour or two after he played before Voivod at the BrooklynVegan party. Stay tuned for more Crack-a-thon announcements.

Gwar was also spotted walking around the convention center, near the Fader Fort and other random places in Austin that week.

More than 7,000 protest crime wave in Mexico

(AP) – 22 hours ago

MONTERREY, Mexico — More than 7,000 people have gathered in the northern Mexico city of Monterrey to protest a wave of violence that has affected the country's third largest city in recent weeks.

Most of the protesters wore white at a rally in Monterrey's main park and some released white balloons and a white dove as signs of peace.

Nuevo Leon state Gov. Rodrigo Medina led the protesters on a brief walk through Fundidora Park. His border state has seen a surge in violence that authorities blame on a turf war between the Gulf drug cartel and the Zetas, the cartel's former hit men.

Hours before the rally Sunday, two soldiers and a civilian were wounded in a shootout between troops and gunmen in Monterrey.


Just send in GWAR to deal with these drug lord slime.
