At 2:00 p.m. on Friday, August 30, 2019, GWAR will unveil a monument to the band’s co-founder and longtime leaderDave Brockie, which will be set in Richmond, Virginia’s famed Hollywood Cemetery (412 S Cherry St, Richmond, VA). All are invited to the unveiling, and to a free party the next day, August 31, at the GWARbar (217 W Clay St, Richmond, VA).
“The party will feature a performance byRAWG, the greatest GWAR tribute band of all time. Friday, August 30 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,” the band says.
“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 ‘n’ roll history.”
