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...
