Insane Clown Posse released their seventh song EP titled, Wicked Vic, on February 17. As well as dropping a new record, the band also, once again, held an annual festival in Tucson during the weekend after their album was released, spanning from February 18 to the 19.
Hardcore hip-hop
Insane Clown Posse is a horrorcore experimental hip-hop duo from Detroit. Since their inception in 1989, they have been well known for their tasteful yet dark humor and insanely elaborate live performances.
Several songs from their latest release were performed as well as a plethora of classics such as Hokus Pokus, In my Room, and Great Milenko.
“I listened to Insane Clown Posse’s older stuff like [The] Great Milenko, and Bang! Pow! Boom! And it’s crazy to see that they still make good music now, 20 years later,” said Benjamin Gilbert, a Freshman.
While tickets had to be ordered in advance, the regular entry fee was 0 dollars, while VIP tickets including a meet and greet with the members of Insane Clown Posse ranged from 39-74 dollars.
The event included a performance from ’80s heavy metal band, The Bitchin’ Wild Bucks, as well as a performance from Insane Clown Posse themselves. All concert viewers got a commemorative token upon entry.
“I went to the show with my brother and I had never heard of them before. The concert was absolutely crazy, a bunch of people rushed the stage at the end and had to be ushered off by security,” said Adam Lane, a freshman who attended the concert.
Three hour show
The bands performed for about 3 hours each day with elaborate stage shows including several clowns dancing to the music during the performance.
“As a huge fan of [Insane Clown Posse], it was crazy to get to see them live, especially at an event surrounded by diehard fans of the group. The crowd was fantastic and matched the chaotic energy of the music, despite being packed in the theater really close,” said Sunny Price, a concert goer.
The band has announced that their final tour will begin later this year, with the exact dates being undecided so far. However, small shows like Juggalo weekend might be the only way to catch a glimpse of the rap duo live.
