Take one metal band, add bizarre, half-creature half-space costumes, a ton of props and blood-like oozing substances splattered around onstage and in the crowd and you have the raucous, outlandish mess that is a GWAR show. That mess is coming to Remmingtons Downtown tonight with opening acts Priestess and Cattle Decapitation (yes, that’s a band name), and you’d better be ready. All we’re saying is don’t wear anything you’ve had occasion to wear since 1992. Meanwhile, elsewhere in the Local Musicverse:
