Insane Clown Posse: Show Preview

Are you down with the clown? This burning question and more are sure to be answered when Detroit's Insane Clown Posse brings its three-ring circus to the Bay Area this weekend. Like Kiss, the duo's geriatric, clown-like forefathers, ICP has a devoted cult following of misunderstood youth, called Juggalos, who dress up like their idols and do anything the rappers tell them. This usually includes “getting the fuck down” and letting members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope spray them with mass quantities of Faygo soda-pop. In recent years, hip-hop's evil jesters have reached Internet-meme status due to the unintentionally hilarious commercials for their annual Gathering of the Juggalos festival, which have been parodied by Saturday Night Live and others. So it will be interesting to see what percentage of audience members at these shows are genuine fans, and which are there ironically. Show highlights are sure to include the hit single “Homies” and the ever-philosophical “Miracles,” a song that condemns all scientists for being liars and asks that age-old question: “Magnets, how do they work?”
