Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[MONSTERS OF ROCK] When Gwar burst onto the national scene 25 years ago, it was easy to dismiss the act as pure schtick. These are, after all, metal musicians who dress as gigantic space monsters bent on enslaving humanity. To the uninitiated, the depravity of the show alone could put the band in the Juggalo arena. But two-and-a-half decades and 13 albums (including last month’s Battle Maximus) later, Gwar is still at the top of its niche mountain, trumping the clown rappers by maintaining shock onstage while nailing biting satire. Any clown can spray Faygo while talking about fucking corpses. It takes masters to spray urine, blood and semen on a crowd while simultaneously shredding their instruments and taking sneakily intelligent jabs at the system.
