The intergalactic Scumdogs, known as Gwar, will descend on Emo’s Thursday, October 25, to melt your face off, or at the very least, to cover it in a myriad of bodily fluids. The shock-rocking space monsters will be unleashing metal mayhem on the ears of Austinites as part of their Fate or Chaos Tour.
When Flattus Maximus returned to the cosmos in 2011 he left a void that was only recently filled by another member of the Maximus clan. Oderus Urungus, Balsac the Jaws of Death, Jizmak Da Gusha and Beefcake the Mighty will be joined on stage by lead guitarist, Pustulus Maximus, from now on. Pustulus has been working with the band on new music that is set to be released in 2013.
Opening up for the cosmic mutants will be DevilDriver, Cancer Bats and Legacy of Disorder. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:45 p.m. All ages are welcome. You can get your tickets online through Ticketfly or you can get them at the door. Emo’s is located at 2015 E. Riverside.
