On Friday, August 30th at 2PM EST, GWAR will be unveiling a memorial for their late vocalist and co-founder Dave Brockie. This will occur at Richmond, Virginia’s Hollywood Cemetery. Furthermore, the band will be throwing a free party the next day at their very own GWARbar. Come out if you’re able!

Here’s what the band had to say of this:

“The party will feature a performance by RAWG, the greatest GWAR tribute band of all time. Friday, August 30th marks what would have been Dave Brockie’s 56th birthday. The erection of this monument has been a long time coming, and we are grateful and happy we can finally do this for Dave.

We thank the many people who donated time and money to make this a reality. We hope the marker will provide a long-needed place for Brockie’s friends, family, and fans to pay their respects to this wonderful and deeply talented human being, and of course, to Dave’s famous creation; Oderus Urungus, who will always be remembered as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and roll history.”
