GWAR came to Chapel Hill in about 1990. Maybe it was 1991. I had just started work and had a roommate who was still in college. I didn't go to the show because I had to be at work at Zero Dark Thirty the next morning. But, my roommate went with a few friends.
I rolled out of bed the next day at way-too-early and got ready to head out. I opened the door to find my roommate and his girlfriend standing there completely covered from head to toe in stage blood. It was quite the sight. Roomie looked me in the eye and said, "That. Was. AWESOME!!!!"
