Is there anything more in the Halloween spirit than witnessing those Antarctic alien scumdogs known as Gwar lay waste to the legendary 9:30 Club? This Sunday on Halloween Eve (that’s Sunday, October 30th), Gwar will be performing at the 9:30 Club and to get you all in the spirit of the season we’re giving away a pair of tickets to this very show! All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Halloween and/or horror movie is. At 5pm EST this Friday, October 28th, a winner will be chosen at random (using Random.org) from all valid entries to win the tickets. Be sure to use a valid email you check regularly so I can contact you if you win. Don’t worry, I won’t add you to any spam lists or sell your info or anything sleazy like that. If I haven’t heard back from the winner in 24 hours another winner will be chosen at random. If you can’t wait to see if you win or the contest is already over when you read this, then you can get tickets from Ticket Fly for $25 here.
Gwar is always a fun show to see live and there’s no better way to cap off your Halloween weekend than being recruited into Gwar’s slave pit! But they’re not the only band on this bill; local melo death legends Darkest Hour will be playing this hometown show as well and you know they always go a bit extra hard when they play in DC. Opening the show is a band known as Mutoid Man which features members of Cave In, Converge, All Pigs Must Die and Bröhammer. Now check out these videos of the bands playing and let me know what movies I should watch this weekend, errr I mean, what your favorite Halloween and/or horror flick is!
Gwar – Let Us Slay
Darkest Hour – Convalescence
Mutoid Man – Bridgeburner
