Insane Clown Posse

by Metroland Staff on May 8, 2013

UPSTATE CONCERT HALL, THURSDAY

 

The Insane Clown Posse have never been exactly, well, critically acclaimed. Yet, in the quarter century that Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have been painting their faces, swilling Faygo, and spouting horrorcore rap lyrics about serial killing and the mystery of magnets, Juggalo culture has only grown more visible, and the Capital Region has become one of the country’s biggest Juggalo markets (seriously). The fact that Blender called them the worst band of any genre and the FBI formally classified the Juggalos as a gang has only strengthened the brand and made more than a few haters into tongue-in-cheek fans. As Ders on Workaholics realized, maybe it’s, like, your real face, not the Juggalo face paint, that you’re hiding behind. (May 9, 8 PM, $30, 1208 Route 146, Clifton Park, 371-0012)
