Politics in this country might be too far gone for any reasoned debate, but thats exactly why GWAR exists. As Earths only openly extra-terrestrial rock band, GWAR has the wherewithal to cut through the rotting meat of our current Presidential election and get to the heart of the issues: Namely, which candidate can survive a grueling, two-hour-long deathmatch against the Destructo brothers? Says band manager Sleazy P. Martini via his website, [Ill] make sure that this will be the fairest and squarest test of American Presidential metal we can rig my way.
Yep, the band with the fake-bloodiest live show in the galaxy is back to their old ways, lampooning public figures and deconstructing what we call music concerts with their latest tour, Electile Dysfunction 08. The three-month voyage de carnage kicks off tonight at 6:30 at Revolution (200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). In attendance will be the regular gang of foam-latex covered cronies, like Oderus Urungus and Balsac, and presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and John McCain will vie for the coveted Mid-Galactic Wrestling belt. As far as youre concerned, mere mortal, bring $18 (for tickets), a sense of humor, and clothes you wont mind washing fake semen out of. Visit www.jointherevolution.net.
