Teenage BottlerocketDespite issuing an apology yesterday, it appears that several bands have started to drop off from their scheduled appearance at Weasel Fest due to the altercation at SXSW on the weekend.

Teenage Bottlerocket announced their cancellation through twitter saying:

We’re cancelling our appearance at Weaselfest due to obvious reasons. Sorry to anybody who was looking forward to seeing us.

The Soviettes took to Myspace to make the announcement:

Due to recent events that occurred at the Screeching Weasel show in Austin, we are backing out and not playing Weasel Fest on May 29…we are still playing at The Triple Rock, Friday May 27th w/ The Marked Men , Toys That Kill, The Arrivals and The Birthday Suits. Can’t wait for that one!!!!!!!

And finally, Chinese Telephones went through their official website saying:

After recent events in Austin, we have decided to drop off of the Screeching Weasel show in Chicago on May 27th.  We greatly apologize to any Chinese Telephones fans that this might inconvenience.  We are still playing the next night in Chicago w/ Marked Men, Toys That Kill, This is My Fist, and the Arrivals.  We realize this is a 21+ show and is therefore not a substitute for our all ages fans.  Hopefully we can figure something out.

Weasel Fest is a three day festival headlined by Screeching Weasel that is set to take place fromMay 27-29 at Reggie’s in Chicago, IL.
