2012 Gathering of the Juggalos Lineup Revealed

2012 Gathering of the Juggalos Lineup Revealed 

Earlier this year we made the April Fool’s joke that ICP would ditch their makeup for Gathering of the Juggalos 2012. Since we had a little fun at the expense of the Juggalos it is only fair that we post this lineup. While we may only have one Juggalo amongst our family here at Concert Confessions, the fact is pretty much all of us would go to a Gathering if we had the chance. When it comes to getting acts to reunite the Gathering is on the same level as Coachella and hey talk about some bad ass wrestling going down at these things.  Here is the lineup for the 2012 edition per Wikipedia:

Main Stage:

Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Anybody Killa, Cold 187um, Dark Lotus, Psychopathic Rydas, Geto Boys, The Game, Tech N9ne, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Static-X, Mack 10, Fear Factory, Kool Keith, Onyx, The Millionaires, Master P, Prozak, DMX, Jumpsteady, Rude Boy, Ric Flair

Special Stage:

Mushroomhead, Rehab, Soulfly, Danny Brown, Slaine, Motown Rage, Zug Izland, P.O.D., Swollen Members, Hed P.E., Kottonmouth Kings

Violent J’s West Side Party:

The Pharcyde, Lil Eazy, Warren G, Glasses Malone

Shaggy 2 Dope & DJ Clay’s Beast of The East:

Raekwon, The Fat Boys, Rahzel, Biz Markie

Twiztid’s Dirty Dirty Party:

Comedy Stage:

Upchuck The Clown, Cheech & Chong, Ralphie May, Bobcat Goldthwait, Jamie Kennedy

The Gathering will take place August 8th-12th 2012 at Cave In Rock in Illinois. Due to the extreme heat this year ICP have asked that Juggalos don’t have open fires at their camp as the only thing more stale that a lack of camp fire is a forest fire. You can check out the event video down below. For all other information on the 2012 Gathering of the Juggalos you can check out the official site by clicking here.

Wayne Static 02/08/12: Recher Theatre – Townson, MD

 

I don’t do many reviews simply because I have limited time with working full time and going to school in the evening. Yesterday after working 8.5 hours at work and being tortured for 2 hours in my math class, I hauled ass over to the Recher Theatre in Towson, Maryland to catch the Wayne Static show. Although it was only Wednesday, it had been a pretty fucked up week for me and I needed some live music to get myself grounded again. Live music ALWAYS does the trick. However, this “reivew” will be more of an opinion piece as I felt like I was at some sort of XXX circus than a rock show.

I have been a Static-X fan since day one. I remember seeing them at the side stage at Ozzfest in 1999 (I believe that was the year…they seem to all mesh together the older you get). When they played Ozzfest, not many people knew who they were. All the band memebers were walking around and I got a picture with Wayne, Tony, and Ken (the old drummer). I’ve been a fan of them over the years. They call thier sound “evil disco” which is a term that fits them well. If you love that hard-core industrial sound then Static-X will get the job done for you.

 

Static-X went through some band memeber changes and eventually made their way back to the orginal line up minus Ken Jay on drums. It didn’t last long and the band fell apart, hence the reason for Wayne Static going solo. Rumor quickly circulated as to why the band broke up. I have never listened to rumors. I like to see things for myself. I looked forward to see how Wayne was without his right hand man, Tony.

I hate to admit it, but I was disappointed…BIG TIME!

I was pleased because Wayne Static played more Static-x songs than his solo shit which I have not really listened to yet. My friend raised the point that it was NOT a Static-x show, it was a Wayne Static show so why the fuck was he playing Static-x songs more than his solo stuff? If you go to see Scott Weiland, he will play a couple of Stone Temple Pilots songs, but the majority of his show is his solo stuff. Makes sense. I have a feeling, though, that I wasn’t the only one happy that he was playing Static-X songs.

He played all the favorites, like “Push it,” “Love dump,” “Loser,” “Trance Is The Motion,” etc…and while I got off on the songs, it was not the same feel as it would have been if it were the original band line up. However, this was not the only thing that was off….

Wayne’s wife (Former Adult Film Star Tara Wray) and another chick were on stage for the entire show. They were dancing around, making out, and twirling huge light sticks. His wife was topless the entire time, with black tape covering her nipples. Now, I know that sex goes hand in hand with rock n’ roll but it took something AWAY from the show. I made the comment to my friend that I felt like I was watching a XXX circus rather than a rock show. Even my friend, who is a straight male, said that even though he enjoyed watching the girls, it was not the place for them. We were there to see a rock show, not a porno.

The part that really made me laugh was when his wife got to use a fuckin’ microphone to make groaning noises and put a few words together. What was even worse than that was when they played “Loser,” she used her finger and her thumb in the shape of an “L” on her forehead, but then again, Wayne was doing it too. What’s worse, is she had a shovel in her hand and was rocking it above her head. It was the most cheesiest, stupidest thing that I have ever seen at a concert.

My issues with his wife being on stage with him are as follows:

1. She is dancing around half naked. How many men who truely love thier wife would be cool with her showing her goods to complete strangers like that? Where the hell is the respect?

2. If she wants to be in the entertainment business, then she needs to find her own thing, NOT ride on the tails of her husband. If he continues to allow her to be on stage with him, his career is going to go straight down the shitter…and what I failed to mention, there was hardly anyone there. There was plenty of room to dance around and move and breath, it was really pathetic, actually.

3. Why the fuck do you need to bring out big light sticks?? I felt like I was at a fuckin’ rave! If the music is good, you DO NOT NEED that extra flashy shit. I mean, what is the point of having that going on stage?

4. The shovel…REALLY??? That looked so fuckin’ stupid…I can’t believe Wayne allowed it.

5. If this isn’t another Kurt/Courtney or  Ono/Lennon thing in the making, then I don’t know what is!

I don’t think having your wife (or your husband) take up part of your spot light is smart. It was just really sad, and maybe you had to be there to experience it for yourself to see what I am desperatly trying to say, but the rumors are true. His wife IS part of his band and if I were Tony and the other guys, I would have bailed on Wayne too and this is coming from a huge Static-X fan!

Instead of going by “Wayne Static” he should add “And Wife” to that because she really tried to be as big of a part of his show as he is….sad and pathetic!
