Boston punk band Street Dogs just got in a scuffle with some neo-nazis at a show in Anaheim, California. Guitarist Lenny Lashley quite literally jumped over security into the crowd to take care of business after the nazis came through. They tantalized the fans with sieg heil salutes but it didn't last long. The crowd and security immediately took action themselves, quickly resolving the incident. The band went back to playing shortly after.

To all the bigots out there, you may feel safe with your ignorant views and hatred spewing behind a computer screen… But don't you dare bring your shit to our community or to our shows. You will be put in your place swiftly.

Here's the official statement from the band:

At this time I would like to officially address what happened in Anaheim. Last night at our show in Anaheim at the House Of Blues while we were playing our song Final Transmission for a dear departed fan and friend of ours USMC Jordan Stanton we noticed a group of Neo nazis rough housing and intimidating our fans and throwing up sieg heil salutes in the air. Their very presence, their hateful,bigoted and ignorant ideology is odious to us and completely unacceptable. We with fans, friends and the assistance of security removed them from the crowd and in the process of mitigating them out some of us sustained superficial injuries. We can attribute those injuries only being superficial in nature to the House Of Blues and their exceptional staff, our fans and our friends. After they were removed we continued with our show and finished the show without incident. In closing we submit this no neo nazis are allowed at our shows. We have always believed in equality and that all people are created equal. We will not suffer or tolerate bigotry in any manifestation. PERIOD!!!!

Respectfully Submitted,

Mike McColgan
