Does Seattle Have Juggalo Friendly Record Stores?

Posted by on Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 4:18 PM

A publicist with Psychopathic Records has just asked me this important question. I don't shop for records nearly enough. WHAT SAY YOU, LINEOUT?

Is there a particular record store in Seattle that could be considered "Juggalo friendly?" A place where Juggalos regularly buy their merch or at least isn't adverse to hanging an ICP poster on the wall? I'm trying to identify indie record stores that are down with the clown. Having been away from the Pacific Northwest since the '90s (I moved to Detroit in '99), I don't even know what Seattle music stores are even around anymore. Got any tips?

Mad Clown Love,

Jason, Psychopathic Records

I was in Singles Going Steady years ago and the two Insane Clown Posse guys came in to drop off flyers for a show. They weren't wearing makeup but they were wearing giant matching red sports jerseys. The owner at the time asked them if they wanted to wrestle but they declined

I almost said, "But Hot Topic is closed"
There's still one (whoop, whoop!) in the Southcenter Mall

Also, I thought all juggalos were into wrestling. Weird!

I'm not trying to be a dick here, this is a serious response... Wouldn't having a Juggalo-friendly record store just be asking for half of your stock to be shoplifted by purple-haired 35 year old women in Tigger shirts?

I've been to most (if not all) of Seattle's record shops and the answer is a very respectful "no". They are not a demographic that demands physical media, so they are not specifically catered to. I bet you could find their stuff at many places, but I know of no place that fosters an ICP culture.

Try Kent? Renton? Lynnwood?

I'm having fun thinking of the most inappropriate stores to hang an ICP poster. Wall of Sound springs immediately to mind.

I think I've seen ICP posters at the Silver Platters at Northgate, as they have a lot of poster space and aren't quite as curated. There are a lot of places you can get the CDs, but it doesn't seem like there's a store that specifically caters to Psychopathic Records types.
