"...an open-minded first-person account of the annual, infamous Gathering of the Juggalos. ... offers a refreshingly different perspective from the get-go."
"...documents the Juggalos — their political involvement, their identities, and what it means to be a part of something."
WHOOP! WHOOP! Ever wonder what it’s like to be a diehard fan of one of the world’s most eccentric musical groups? No? Then you’re in luck! Craven Rock journeys deep into Juggalo country to get a better understanding of the staying power and appeal of the horrorcore hip-hop duo, Insane Clown Posse (ICP). Ridiculous, disturbing, and downright weird, Juggalos seem more caricature than real. But look past their makeup and over-the-top personas, go beyond first impressions, and you’ll find something surprisingly relatable and quintessentially human.
Part festival-goer’s journal, part music history, part investigative report, part social commentary.
