The complete Denver music fan field guide
Noah Van Sciver
These are mainstream-rap fans. These people dig whatever's hot at the time, so their taste is dominated by radio-friendly danceable beats and easily accessible and universal lyrics (generally about partying, going hard in the paint, etc.). You can find them at pretty much any mainstream hip-hop show, from Gucci Mane to Waka Flocka, and (ironically) Independent Records.
Travel and Leisure named Denver as the tenth-best city for hipsters in the United States. This contemporary subculture has a penchant for the retro and hip, and those who fit the makeup of this species take advantage of Denver's impressive music scene, microbrews and crafting culture. Hipsters have an affinity for fixed-gear bikes and drip coffee. They have sausage casings for pants, possess a general eccentricity in personality and hobbies, and have access to, or knowledge about, things you've never seen or heard of. Chances are pretty good that they're either in a band, want to be in a band, or are dating someone in a band.
A Juggalo is a devoted fan and follower of Insane Clown Posse (ICP), a clown-loving, Faygo-guzzling hip-hop duo out of Detroit, Michigan. Juggalos come from all walks of life and consider themselves a family. The FBI considers them a gang. They tend to have radical cult-like feelings toward ICP and its other followers, and they can most likely be found donning Hatchet man hockey jerseys and various other paraphernalia and sometimes wearing face paint. Nationally, the best place to see them is at the Gathering of the Juggalos. Locally, you can find them at Skyline Park.
