Boston's legendary thrashers WARGASM took part in a four-song acoustic performance on August 31, 2008 on WAAF's "Bay State Rock" show with Carmelita. The performance also included members of STEEL ASSASSIN and GOZU and featured original WARGASM songs as well as NWOBHM classics.

WARGASM played a special reunion show Saturday night (September 13) at the Middle East in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The set was reportedly recorded for future release as "Why Play Alive!" As with the band's 2004 reunion concert, the show was held in conjunction with Rawkstars, a music education-based non-profit that benefits low-income Boston-area kids.
