Gwar is still looking at the human race as a free comedy hour. They joked about Americans immigrating to Mexico, taking over the world, and predicting the future. Meanwhile, the Aggrolites are taking white reggae music to another level. Their fresh Jamaican skinhead style makes them worth seeing this weekend.
