GWAR / Mithya / Born of Osiris / Battlecross (Cabooze)

Last night, I went to the Mithya, Born of Osiris and #Battlecross #concert at the #Cabooze, #music club. If you haven't heard of GWAR, I'd be a little surprised (and yes, their MN show was on my #mnbucketlist). Hailing from #Richmond #Virginia, they are the quintessential #shockrock extremists. With a crazy blend of narration about each of their characters, #interplanetary warriors who were found in #Antarctica. They are a mix of #BattlestarGalactica, #RockyHorrorPictureShow and Repo: The Genetic #opera with a little #TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles. They have this insane, incredible history that is really worth checking into. Last year they lost #OderusUrungus (Dave Brockie) and one of their former "slaves", the original #Beefcake, #Blothar, turn historian, turned #professor, became their lead singer. I'd actually seen Blothar (Michael Bishop) give a #TEDTalk on the significance of GWAR in social in political culture, so crazy. Outside of my hair and skin being stained blue and red (still), I'd say it was pretty #awesome.
