Get Ready, Get Set, Go!

Gwar-B-Q tickets are on sale today.

Gwar-B-Q tickets are now on sale. And the event has expanded to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary. For three days, from Aug. 14 to 16, Gwar has released its slaves from the pit to throw not one but two pre-parties, B4BQ, at the Broadberry and the National on Friday, Aug. 14. On Saturday, Aug. 15, rabid fans will throng Hadad’s Lake (7900 Osborne Turnpike), where they’ll find three stages barely containing the 20 bands on this year’s roster.

Old people like me (which also includes every member of Gwar) will be hit with frenzied nostalgia when the Descendents, the Cro-mags and the Dickies (the Dickies!) blast our poor aging ears with the hardcore we love. Actually, maybe we won’t notice after decades of shows and the hearing loss that’s resulted. Here’s a link to list of a few of the other bands that will take the stage.

Why is this on Style’s food page? Because Gwar-B-Q isn’t just about the music — it’s about the food, too. In the spirit of excess, the band has 30 food trucks scheduled to arrive to satiate any hungry Bohab, along with their own special Gwar-made offerings. (Protip: You might want to fuel up before the Spew-O-Lympics.) And you can pick up a bottle of Gwar-B-Q sauce and Gwar-B-Q hot sauce on your way out.

In addition, any survivors can refuel at GwarBar’s Brutal Brunch (217 W. Clay St.) on Sunday, Aug. 16.

To buy tickets, from $45 to $299, and get every single detail you need about the event, head over to Oderus commands you to from Valhalla.
