First time I heard of GWAR was when my friend got us tickets to see them in 1987 or 88 — we drove from Detroit to the Tam O’ Shanter skating rink outside Toledo, OH; the stage was made from plywood & milk crates.

At one point, they were playing while skating around the rink on rollerskates (except for the drummer, of course)

P.S. yo what’s up 80’s Toledo punks‽

My husband from Detroit has similar stories!

you mind asking him if he remembers Lacey? Dude was basically the king of the “scene” when I was hanging out; just curious if your husband was around around the same timeframe

I definitely will! He's out of the country right now sleeping soundly but as soon as I can I will!

The first time I saw GWAR they literally raped a Joan Benet dummy, then chopped the head off the pope and fed both to a giant vagina.

That was before the first song...

My friend took me and I knew nothing about the band at all.

Exactly the same thing happened to my contacts when I saw them in Lawrence, KS in '97

My friend suffered the pink contacts thing after a Gwar show. He threw them out, but before that, he thought he'd test to see how many enzyme baths it would take to get them clear again.

The answer is four.
