Durty Nellie’s in Palatine along with Kickstand Productions will present the infamous and epic theater of shock-rockers GWAR on Wednesday, June 2 at 8:00 PM for a 21+ event. Interviews and hi-res photos available upon request.
Formed in Richmond, VA in the mid-eighties, GWAR (Metal Blade Records) is a Grammy-nominated act with an expansive cult following. Best known for their elaborate nightmarish costumes, raunchy lyrics and graphic stage performances, GWAR’s live shows consist of political and taboo humor, crowd participation and even a “cannon of blood”. Another trademark of GWAR’s concerts is their lampooning of celebrities and current event figures. Targets of GWAR’s humor have included Osama Bin Laden, Michael Jackson, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Paris Hilton and many others. Their music ranges from 80’s punk-rock to theatrical metal and their most recently released album is 2009’s Lust In Space.
Opening acts at Durty Nellie’s will include: Dirge Within (E1 Entertainment) and Mobile Deathcamp (Indica/RCA). Dirge Within hail from Chicago and have been performing their own unique form of death-grindcore since their start in 2007. Having scored opening slots for the likes of Type O Negative, God Forbid and Dope, they signed to E1 Entertainment (formerly Koch Records) in May 2009. Mobile Deathcamp is fronted by former GWAR member Beefcake the Mighty (Todd Evans) and although unsigned, they’ve shared the stage with major acts like Marilyn Manson, Slayer and Cannibal Corpse.
Durty Nellie’s is conveniently located next to the Palatine Metra station and only a short ride from Downtown Chicago, making it a hot spot for any urban suburban.
WHEN: Wednesday, June 2. Doors open at 7:00 PM, show at 8:00 PM.
