Florida juggalos probably don't need the memo that ShockFest is bringing legendary 'los Insane Clown Posse to Firestone Live on Oct. 7. Doors open at 7 p.m., inviting a whole Psychopathic Records-endorsed crew including Mushroomhead, Da Mafia 6ix, Madchild and Jellyroll. The Posse released the latest installment of their Forgotten Freshness rarities compilations in 2013, Forgotten Freshness, Vol. 5 (I guess that sugary Faygo really eats at the memory over the years).
So don your HatchetGear and get ready to whoop it up next month. Just don't ask the juggalos if they're planning a trip to Disney World while in town ... pretty sure that beef is still going strong from when the Mouse pulled ICP's new record off shelves and cancelled their tour in 1997 because, of all things, "It wasn't full of family fun." The Imagineers obviously couldn't foresee the devoted Floob family reunions known as the Gathering.
