Weasel Fest Update, Part 3

It seems that even Reggie's Rock Club, unenviable host of the 25th Anniversary Weasel Fest weekend, has added fuel to speculation that the event might be scrapped altogether in light of Ben Weasel's recent lady-fightin' ways.

The above screen shot is taken from Reggie's website and would seem to indicate that things are not going well, to say the least.

Initially, only a few bands - namely Teenage Bottlerocket, Chinese Telephones, the Soviettes - dropped off the bill. While this was horrible news for fans of the bands, it seemed to be a somewhat manageable exodus. Then, of course, Chixdiggit dropped out, followed by Khepi Ghoulie, Zatopeks and Banner Pilot.

Ruh roh, Raggy!

We have spoken recently with our contact at Reggies, who indicates that the club is working furiously to ensure no further acts drop out of the festival, going so far as to promise preferential treatment in booking future shows at Reggie's. Does that mean that bands who do drop out will be black-balled by the venue. Not in so many words, says our contact.

Ooooh, the plot thickens.
