Screeching Weasel Implodes

This has been a bad couple of weeks for Ben Weasel. First he got into a fight at SXSW (which was of course captured on video and posted on YouTube; watch the's amazingly idiotic). Then he apologized for his actions. After that a number of bands dropped out of the upcoming Weasel Fest. If that wasn't enough, the other members of Screeching Weasel all quit the band (not that I can blame them one iota). But wait, there's more. That upcoming Weasel Fest...yeah it's been cancelled.

A few things come to mind looking at this entire fiasco.

  1. Punk rockers do really stupid things at shows

  2. A middle-aged man, who has a wife and kids, should know better than to even respond to the morons in the crowd

  3. Punk rockers do really stupid things at shows.

I love punk rock but I hate the way a lot of people behave at punk shows and this mess with Ben Weasel is a perfect example of the idiocy that goes on at many of these events. Grow up people.
