Wilco has canceled their May 7th show in Indianapolis because of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Wilco says on their Facebook page:

We are canceling our May 7th show at the Murat in Indianapolis. The “Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act” feels like thinly disguised legal discrimination to us. Hope to get back to the Hoosier State someday soon, when this odious measure is repealed. Refunds available at point of purchase.

The law passed last week prohibits state laws that “substantially burden” a person’s ability to follow his or her religious beliefs. Critics say the law allows discrimination against gays and lesbians. Read more here.
