Cartoony metal rap band Insane Clown Posse performs with Twiztid and Slip Joint at 8 tonight at Jannus Landing in downtown St. Petersburg. ICP's live show is known to involve fires, chain saws and gallons of Faygo soda dousing the audience.
The act got dropped in 1998 by the Disney label the day it released its album. Apparently the family-oriented record label didn't want to promote homicidal and sexist rap by white guys in blackface.
Lately ICP has been getting more attention for brawling with fellow Detroit rap hooligan Eminem, who allegedly pulled a gun on an ICP associate the same day he brandished one at a guy kissing his wife later that night in the parking lot of a Michigan bar.
Anyway, tickets for tonight's show are $20 through Ticketmaster. Call (727) 896-1244.
