Never mind the insinuations that last year’s public stoning (and feces-ing) of Tila Tequila might put an end to Insane Clown Posse’s annual Dionysian ritual paying orgiastic tribute to life’s many miracles and painted tits. The Gathering of the Juggalos 2011 returns this August 11 through 14, with all the exhortations that it will “knock your fuckin’ wigs off” that implies—either metaphorically or with a urine-and-shit-soaked watermelon. In fact, the attack on Tequila (and to a lesser extent, the similar attack on Method Man) and the resultant publicity storm, in true ICP fashion, is actually being used as a selling point: In the words of the official announcement from Psychopathic Records, “After all the madness you heard went down at last year’s Gathering, you just fuckin' KNOW that shit is going to be devastating in 2011!” Artists, lock down your stage time today. [Village Voice]
