Gogol Bordello boycotts Arizona in response to SB 1070, AZ fans bummed/pissed

Gypsy punks Gogol Bordello announced today that they will be boycotting Arizona in response to the state passing the controversial Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act (aka SB 1070).  The bill is known as being the broadest and strictest anti-illegal immigration measure in decades.  The issue probably hits close to home for the band because believe it or not, they’re not actually from around here.

You can read the Gogol Bordello’s official statement about the boycott here, and then you can read the comments from the their Arizona resident fans who don’t seem to thrilled about the band’s course of action, which is maybe the most interesting about this story.
