Costumed metal warlords GWAR suffered a major blow with the death of band leader Dave Brockie — aka “Oderus Urungus” — earlier this year. But they are forging forward with their leader’s mission of intergalactic domination via their metallic screeds. New characters Blothar and Vulvatron — the latter, GWAR’s first female member since the early 2000s exit of backup singer Slymenstra Hymen — are proudly continuing Brockie’s tradition of weaving the band’s ambitious folklore around tales of sex, destruction and scatology. Early performances featuring the new configuration have maintained the level of blood and gore that made the band’s live presence notorious, and the departure of Oderus has been woven into the band’s mythology. This show will be the first chance for L.A. fans to behold the next chapter of GWAR.
