Wishing for Mimes

Woo! Woo! Juggalo! The clowns are coming. Insane clowns. A whole posse of them, clowning around with face paint that makes Gene Simmons think twice about the merits of one or two paternity suits. Who are the ICP? And what do they want from you? According to insaneclownposse.com, "They emerge like phantoms amidst rumors of horror and stories of violence, shrouded in secrecy and surrounded by speculation, only to disappear back underground, beneath the streets." I guess that's a fancier way of saying, "a bunch of dudes put on makeup and make music my 12-year-old nephew won't even bother jerking off to." And seriously, he jerks off to anything. See the Insane Clown Posse at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Ridglea Theater, 6025 Camp Bowie Blvd. in Fort Worth. Tickets are $30 (human dollars, not clown money). Call 817-738-9500 or visit ridgleatheater.com.
Tue., Oct. 17, 7 p.m.
