I’m really disturbed to hear about this incident. It is hard enough for women to feel comfortable and welcome attending music shows and festivals without male performers literally doing violence unto them.
Misogynistic dickhead shows himself to be a violent misogynistic dickhead.
Okay, if we're going to start defending the hitting of the person who threw the ice because they were pissed at his misogynistic rantings -- which is already a fairly weak place to start -- how do we defend the hitting of the person who tried to break up the hitting?
What you feel isn't supposed to be an exact determinant of what you do, unless you're under 2. Adulthood is normally available in between. Why is anyone, anywhere defending a performer punching people in the face?
As a result, the band has discussed at length and has come to the conclusion that as a group we will not likely be able to muster the dignity to attempt a live performance as "Screeching Weasel" in the for-seeable future. We each look forward to re-evaluating our involvement in the band as we move forward if we are given the opportunity.
