– From Kevin: ICP ISSUE STATEMENT ON POLICE RAID AT JCW EVENT, REFUND INFORMATIONâ€
They Canâ€™t Stop Our Shine
Juggalos, we know a lot of speculation is rollinâ€™ around about what happened on Wednesday, February 9th, at The Modern Exchange in Southgate, MI during the JCW Tag Team Tournament, but weâ€™re here to set the record straight!
What it comes down to is that we wanted to have free beer for everyone twenty-one and up at the event. We checked with the venue and they told us that supplying free beer to the Ninjas of legal drinking age wouldnâ€™t be an issue. It was f—inâ€™ onâ€¦ we thought.
Unfortunately, the venue was mistaken. Not more than five minutes into the first match the police came in and straight up shut us down. Yes they could have been cool about it and came in earlier before we opened doors and told us “no beer”. There would have been no problems, nobody would have drank a thing, and we could have had a great night regardless. But instead they waited until things got under way and everybody was having fun. They came in deep, surrounded the building, and shut the entire show down. The owner of the venue was heavily fined. Some of the Juggalos in attendance were even ticketed for underage drinking. It was the bone all around!
The official response to this utter madness from Psychopathic Records is thisâ€¦ THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
JCW will make its big, unscathed return to The Modern Exchange in Southgate, MI on February 23rd for a bigger, badder, and brighter show than anything weâ€™ve done before! So for anyone who purchased tickets to the canned JCW Tag Team Tournament on February 9th, we will be honoring those very tickets at this new, even fresher event!
Join us February 23rd at the Modern Exchange as we present, for the first time ever outside of the Gathering, FLASHLIGHT HYSTERIA! 8 Huge matches with four official flashlight bouts! Check this out: A brand new flashlight autographed by the Insane Clown Posse, JCW Champion Corporal Robinson, and 2 Tuff Tony will be handed out to every single â€˜Lo and â€˜Lette who walks in the door! During these exciting flashlight matches, the only light on the wrestlers will be from the many flashlights in the hands of the Juggalos. This is something new, original and extremely unique from JCW, and itâ€™s JUGGALO PATENTED BITCH! Also appearing at this amazing show, returning to JCW after a four year hiatus is world renowned wrestling superstar Vampiro!
Because the Tag Team Tournament never had a chance to happen, weâ€™ve figured out a new way to crown champions. The main event of Flashlight Hysteria will be a “16 Man, Tag Team, Flashlight Battle Royal!” 8 teams will enter and one team will go home as the new JCW Tag Team Champions!
Nothing will stop us this time! Weâ€™re coming back even stronger! Nothing can fade us, even a little. They cannot kill the freshness! They cannot dim the shine of our karma. Do not let what happened on the 9th deter you from coming out, having a blast and being with family on Feb 23rd at Flashlight Hysteria! Plus every other Wednesday after that! Together we are invincible and that is what the world does not understand!
