Even though it’s been 6 long years since their last record, don’t expect any curveballs; this is classic CHIXDIGGIT!

Screeching Weasel have announced plans to celebrate their 25th Anniversary with a killer weekend in Chicago, IL! The festivities will kick off at Reggie’s on Friday, May 27th with a slew of bands performing over the 3-day weekend. Ben Weasel gave a rundown of the event below, enjoy!
2011 marks Screeching Weasel’s 25th anniversary. To celebrate, we’re playing Reggie’s in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend, and we’re pulling out all the stops on this one, my friends. Screeching Weasel will be playing Friday, May 27th and Sunday the 29th (a different set each night), with the Riverdales playing our only North American show of the year on Saturday the 28th. Tickets will be on sale this Saturday, Dec. 18th at noon CST here. Right now we’re only selling tickets at the package price for the whole weekend – single day tickets will go on sale January 1st. In the meantime, check out the line-up! We’re still working on our 2011 show schedule, but I wanted to let you guys know about this one now because it’s too good to wait.
FRIDAY MAY 27th
THE JETTY BOYS
SATURDAY MAY 28th
THE SUGAR STEMS
SUNDAY MAY 29th
(TO BE ANNOUNCED)
THE STEVE ADAMYK BAND
The shows are all 17+. I wish we didn’t have to restrict it but with this many bands on the bill every night we’re going to need to go later than the curfew would allow for an all ages show.
Vapid and I will be doing a DJ set one of the evenings in the lounge after the show, and people from some of the other bands will be doing them the other nights. See ya there!
Strung Out are beginning to assemble a retrospective album and need some help from their loyally inked fans. The music portion of the album is already in the works, and will include a number of surprises, both new and old. But in order to create a truly unique collection, the band is asking that all fans with Strung Out tattoos send the band high-quality photos of their tattoos along with their full name, city, state, and country of residence, to be included in a massive gallery in the album’s packaging. Please e-mail all submissions to email@example.com The deadline is January 31, 2011.
