Craven Rock is a former resident of West Oakland, also a longtime editor/writer of the zine Eaves of Ass, he will read from his latest book published on Mend My Dress Press. It's a wild and freewheeling ethnography of the Juggalo Family, the evil clown facepainted, serial-killer worshipping, quasi-religious followers of horrorcore rappers Insane Clown Posse, a balanced mix of immersed participation at their family reunion/bacchanal the Gathering of the Juggalos to maniacally-researched insight into why the phenomenon is happening looking into lines of class, race and gender and American culture as a whole.
Craven Rock will read from Nights and Days in a Dark Carnival, his manically-researched delve into the world of the Juggalos, the clown-painted fans of the rap group Insane Clown Posse...a wild ride that looks deeper into the phenomenon than anything that's come before. Rock participates in the debauchery, while also examining the intricately-linked elements of class, faith, violence, and internal marketing embedded within the culture and exploring what it all says about American culture as a whole.
