GWAR turned Irving Plaza into ‘GWARoween pt II: The Bloodening’ (pics)

There were a lot of cool Halloween shows in NYC last night, but the one that was by far the bloodiest was of course GWARoween PT II ‘The Bloodening.’ As the name implies, for the second year in a row, GWAR turned Irving Plaza into a bloody mess on Halloween night. To quote Stephanie, the photographer who took the photos in the above gallery, “This wasn’t called ‘The Bloodening’ for nothing. I swear there was more fake blood sprayed than last year. I was covered.” The place was also full of people who were clearly diehard fans, and, given the occasion, many crowd members were in costume. Shots of openers Miss May I and American Sharks are in the gallery above as well, and GWAR’s setlist is below.

GWAR’s tour continues, and they recently extended it to include a New Year’s run with Iron Reagan, which hits GWAR and Iron Reagan’s shared home state of Virginia on New Year’s Eve night.

In other news, GWAR destroyed a Rick and Morty pop-up bar in DC:
