At 2 PM on Friday, August 30th, 2019, Gwar will unveil a monument to the band's co-founder and longtime leader Dave Brockie, who passed away in 2014. The monument will be set in Richmond, Virginia's famed Hollywood Cemetery (412 S Cherry St, Richmond, VA). The public is invited to the unveiling, and to a free party the next day, August 31st, at the GWARbar (217 W Clay St, Richmond, VA).

Gwar had the following to say about the event:

"The party will feature a performance by RAWG, the greatest GWAR tribute band of all time. Friday, August 30th marks what would have been Dave Brockie's 56th birthday. The erection of this monument has been a long time coming, and we are grateful and happy we can finally do this for Dave.

"We thank the many people who donated time and money to make this a reality. We hope the marker will provide a long-needed place for Brockie's friends, family, and fans to pay their respects to this wonderful and deeply talented human being, and of course, to Dave's famous creation; Oderus Urungus, who will always be remembered as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and roll history."
