At this point, if you don’t know what you’re going to get from a GWAR show, you shouldn’t be anywhere near a GWAR show. But in case you’ve been living under a space rock, these metal goons will be decked out in full prosthetics as alien space fiends, and will bleed all over everyone within range. They lost their singer, Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie in 2014 but, as they say on their own website, “Death cannot kill GWAR. Nothing Can. GWAR lives motherfuckers!” Also on this bill are socially conscious thrashers Sacred Reich, and they alone are worth the ticket price. The Phoenix band’s most recent album, Awakening, is a banger.

GWAR plays with Sacred Reich, Against the Grain and Toxic Holocaust at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 24 at the Belasco.
