Screeching Weasel’s planned three-day 25th anniversary festival, Weaselfest, has been officially axed in the wake of frontman Ben Weasel‘s incident with 2 female fans at South By Southwest earlier this month. Weaselfest was scheduled for May 27 through 29 in Chicago. Immediately following the SXSW incident, bands scheduled for the event—like Teenage Bottlerocket, the Soviettes and Chinese Telephones—dropped off the bill, and the four other members of Screeching Weasel quit the band.
