Eight Gigs: Insane Clown Posse

Mon., May 30, 6 p.m., Ace of Spades, $22

For Juggalos in the greater Sacramento area, this show is like the Pope coming to town for Catholics. The Dark Carnival is upon us. Insane Clown Posse is more than a Detroit rap duo of clowns; it’s a way of life. While many have tried to poke holes in that lifestyle of wrestling, Faygo soda, joker cards and face paint, there’s an unwavering faith in the Juggalo community. The Riddle Box Tour is an opportunity to consider a new path in life: the way of the Juggalo. Or just grab a patio seat across the street and people-watch. 1417 R Street, www.insaneclownposse.com.
