Homeroom is presenting a lecture tomorrow night by Derek Erdman and Jenny Benevento on Juggalo culture. Info from their site... "Juggalo or Juggalette (the latter being feminine) is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group. Juggalos have developed their own idioms, slang, and characteristics." —Wikipedia
Derek Erdman and Jenny Benevento explore the Gathering of the Juggalos, the Dark Carnival, and fucking magnets (how do they work?). Learn about Insane Clown Posse's wicked clowns Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, the horrorcore maestros who reveal the spiritual forces of the Joker's Cards to their followers in order to change people's evil ways before the end consumes us all. Juggalos and Juggalettes in attendance.

101 is a monthly lecture series organized by Homeroom in partnership with youmethemeverybody (a Chicago arts and music podcast). Each event features a different speaker who, in open dialogue with the audience, will give a short talk about not just what they do, but how and why they do it. Occasionally, 101 speakers also discuss other arts and culture makers that inspire and influence them.
