They lost it before they could even really announce it. Looks like the Gathering of the Juggalos is homeless … again. The multi-day festival featuring Insane Clown Posse’s insane fans and comrades getting together to live in Juggalo paradise seems to be falling apart after festival organizers announced they were moving from their longtime venue in Southern Illinois. A few weeks ago we told you that the festival may move to a southern Missouri farm that has campgrounds. Now the festival organizers have to find a new, new place. When reported a few weeks ago, authorities in Southern Missouri seemed to be unclear on what exactly ICP’s Gathering of the Juggalos was all about. Someone must have then gotten onto Google and found out real quick what they were in store for and decided to nix plans. Organizers for The Gathering say they have what it is calling “Plan B” it’s just unclear what that plan is. Maybe they can just go set up in some abandoned neighborhood in Detroit. Throw in some zombie paintball and I’m there!

How much can you get if you break part of your skull and collarbone after a member of the legendary punk funk band Fishbone stage dives on you? Apparently you can get $1.4 million. That’s how much Kimberly Myers of New Jersey was awarded by a judge in Philadelphia this week. The judge blasted Fishbone front man Angelo “Dr. Madd Vibe” Moore for showing little remorse. Apparently Dr. Madd Vibe is notorious for stage diving during shows and there have been other injuries of concert goers. I mean, come on … it’s friggin’ Fishbone for crying out loud!
