Giving you the music a day early:
Following a late 2009 visit where they united the local Juggalos and shared their Faygo, the face-paint sporting duo of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope return to The Village as Insane Clown Posse brings their The Old Sh*t Tour to town. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the music at 8:01 p.m. Tickets are $24 in advance and $28 at the door. ICP is promising the tour will bring the duo’s hits from back in the day to Juggalos in a whole new way, with The Old Sh*t Tour featuring better access to the band — just like in the beginning. Blending a menacing mixture of hip-hop and rock, Insane Clown Posse is known for their psychopathic horrorcore music.
Yes, Kyle Turley, the former NFL offensive tackle, and Kyle Turley, the “power country” artist, are one and the same. So what is power country? Well, it’s the combination of Turley’s influences, from Pantera to Johnny Cash. And yes, Turley wrote a tune about that time he tore Damien Robinson’s helmet off and flung it down the field. It’s called “Flyin’ Helmets.” Turley visits the Revolution Music Room, and the opening act is to be announced, but expect the music at 9 p.m. with a $7 ticket price for the 21-and-up show.
When you call your guitar player by the simple name of Monstrosity, you better deliver the goods, and West Virginia punk band Blitzkid does that, mixing in a touch of goth, metal and horror to their sound. The now quartet — Blitzkid added second guitarist and keyboardist Nathan Bane in the summer — will visit Downtown Music along with local punk act The Kill Crazies as the opening act. The doors open at 7 p.m. with tickets $8 advance and $10 day of show.
