GWAR

A couple weeks ago Kevin, Erika and I went to a GWAR concert at Irving Plaza.  We went purely for the entertainment factor... not the music... I just want to make that clear (I am not a heavy metal fan).


Who is GWAR you ask???  Well GWAR is a heavy metal band that got together in 1984... they dress up in elaborate sci-fi costumes and sing obscene lyrics... they often put on pretty graphic performances.



 I could not understand a single word that was said during the whole show... it just sounded like a bunch of screaming to me.  I guess it's probably good that I didn't understand any of the lyrics since they are supposed to be pretty inappropriate.  Wholesome right?

Well it was entertaining and a little scary, but being sprayed with fake blood was pretty cool.




Bottom line, the night was a blast and definitely a fun experience to have under my belt... I mean how many times do I get to pretend to be badass and get sprayed with fake blood???  But, once is enough for me.

Here is Kevin's shirt post concert... this was his undershirt.

I'm not a heavy metal fan either, but that sounds like it'd be a fun ting to do once!

I can rarely understand what's said at shows and concerts! LOL, but it's still always such fun... I married my first date to my first concert and have had equally cherished memories at following concerts! :)
