Gwar played an intimate, high-energy, sold-out, blood-filled show with a setlist full of classics at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn last night (2/20). Sarah Palin was not in the house unfortunately, but Lady Gaga was. Other characters that made appearances included Sawborg Destructo, Bonesnapper, and of course the slaves. Sleazy P. Martini was nowhere to be found.
Favorite audience member award goes to the girl who was holding up the big sign that simply said "Seculorum of a Goat." If I had only seen her doing that in the middle of the moshpit, I may have not been a fan, but I first experienced her on the street outside the venue where she was running up to people and just screaming "A goat!!! Seculorum of a Goat!!". I still have no idea what it means, but it was awesome.
The setlist was a great mix of old and news, and like when I saw them recently in Austin, they closed with one of their best and most famous songs which is now 21 years old, "Sick of You." It's the perfect show closer, so I'm glad Oderus is not sick of singing it (or maybe he is).
Mobile Deathcamp and Mensrea both opened the show. Gwar is now on tour. More pictures and the setlist from the Brooklyn show, below...
Gwar @ Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010 (more by Tim Griffin)
"GWAR has been touring the world for 25 years, leaving concertgoers with clothing soaked in blood and other bodily fluids (fake, of course). They murder monsters onstage, sacrifice celebrities and politicians, and encourage their fans to beat the holy hell out of each other. That's all well and good, but what really concerned me as a gaming journalist was whether or not they'd ever be able to experience Kinect for Xbox 360. Considering that they are alien creatures that are constantly adorned with spikes, gladiator gear, and codpieces made out of alien sea creatures (yes, that's what that thing is), I wasn't sure if Kinect's technology would be able to sense them. There was only one way to find out, so I invited them to our office." [Does Kinect Work If You Are GWAR?]Gwar, whose last NYC show came on a very snowy post-Christmas night at Best Buy Theater, will invade Williamsburg on Sunday, 2/20/2011. Tickets go on sale Friday, 1/14, at noon for the Brooklyn show and for one at NJ's Starland Ballroom which happens four days later. Both NYC-area shows are with Mobile Deathcamp, but Cannibus Corpse and Mensrea are the support on the 2/25 hometown show they're playing at The National in Richmond.
And though Gwar did end up playing that 12/26 NYC show, the snow stopped them from making it up to Vermont right after that. The rescheduled Higher Ground date is 2/22 (right between Brooklyn and NJ).
More dates TBA? Full tour dates now announced and listed below...
