    California rock group Los Lobos has canceled next Thursday’s show at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale in protest of Arizona's new immigration law.

    The band released a statement this afternoon:

    “We support the boycott of Arizona. The new law will inevitably lead to unfair racial profiling and possible abuse of people who just happen to look Latino. As a result, in good conscience, we could not see ourselves performing in Arizona. We regret the inconvenience this may have caused the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community, Casino Arizona, Talking Stick Resort and our fans, but we feel strongly that it is the right thing to do.”

    Los Lobos had been in negotiations to play in Tucson in September, as part of Hotel Congress’s annual HoCo Fest. Now that seems unlikely.

    “We were talking about details but we hadn’t signed a contract,” says Hotel Congress booker David Slutes. “Now I’m not hopeful, to be honest.”

    Los Lobos is the latest band to announce a boycott of Arizona following the passage of SB 1070, which is set to take effect July 29. Last week a coalition of bands, dubbed Sound Strike, announced it was boycotting the state.

    Sound Strike is led by Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha, who called the law, “an assault on the U.S. Constitution.”

    None of the Sound Strike participants were scheduled to come to Tucson this summer, though bands like Ozomatli, Los Tigres Del Norte, Café Tacvba, and Rise Against are regular visitors.

    So far, Tucson has only missed out on one concert. Cypress Hill canceled 11 days before its May 21 show at the Rialto Theatre.

    Did you have tickets to the show?


    If not, why do you care? It's their choice if they want to cancel or not.


    Last I checked, it was a free country, eh?

    I applaud David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin

    I love Los Lobos. They are a great band that has always had a social consciousness.

    Si Se Puede!, their 1976 debut album was a charity album. Proceeds went towards the United Farm Workers of America.

    By the Light of the Moon is one of my favorite albums

    One Time, One Night
