GWAR will be honoring the late Dave Brockie, best known as the inflammatory Oderus Urungus, with the unveiling of a monument in his honor this August.

The event will be held on what would have been the singer's 56th birthday on Aug. 30 at Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Va. Fans are invited to attend the event and a free party the following day at GWARbar, which will feature a rare performance by RAWG, who are billed as "the greatest GWAR tribute band of all time."

"The erection of this monument has been a long time coming and we are grateful and happy we can finally do this for Dave," GWAR gargle.

"We thank the many people who donated time and money to make this a reality," the monsters continue. "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."
