GWAR Announces Free Public Memorial August 15th & the Starting of The Dave Brockie Foundation

Members of GWAR posted this video, basically thanking supportive fans and confirming that not only is GWAR-B-Q a go this year but there will be a free public memorial on Friday, August 15th.

They also said a bit about The Dave Brockie Foundation:

"The Dave Brockie Foundation is a charity fund with the mission of promoting the advancement of music, images, letters and performances in the arts. It will endeavor to encourage promising talents, as well as preserving the legacy of Dave's body of works. It intends to be a support system to those who have dedicated their lives in pursuit of creativity. The Dave Brockie Foundation will be a resource for artists in the fields of music, film, literature and all visual arts who cannot find funding through mainstream channels. The DBF will also strive to catalog and preserve Dave's vast collection of original images, recordings and written words, and make them available for the world to appreciate. The foundation's first goal is to finance the creation of a memorial monument in Richmond, Virginia to provide the world with a place to pay respects to the memory of a very cherished man."

Dave would be proud of these guys, I'm willing to bet.
