GWAR just keep adding more reasons to justify a pilgrimage to Richmond, Va., for the fifth annual GWAR-B-Q. The music festival and Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus) memorial is already set as a can’t-miss event, but it’s gotten ever better as the Misfits and Dead Kennedys legend Jello Biafra have both been added to the GWAR-B-Q bill.

The 2014 GWAR-B-Q will feature GWAR, Hatebreed, Body Count, Revocation, Goatwhore and many others, but the addition of the Misfits has expanded the fest’s awesomeness even further.

A viking funeral for the departed Oderus Urungus will be held the night before the GWAR-B-Q, and Jello Biafra will now act as the memorial’s master of ceremonies.

“GWAR demands that all attend the Dave Brockie Memorial one day before the GWAR B-Q,” says the intergalactic band. “Fans, friends and possibly protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church will gather from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday, August 15 at Hadad’s Lake. We can now announce that Jello Biafra – punk icon, Dead Kennedys front man and actor in GWAR’s long-form video Skulhedface – will serve as the memorial’s master of ceremonies. Tribute will be paid to both Brockie and Oderus Urungus, as the Scumdog soldier will receive a Viking funeral set ablaze upon the SS Boat. Show up and bid Oderus farewell as he travels to Valhalla and beyond!”
