...The benefit, held amid the dimly lit, Marissa Pasternoster-painted backdrop of Brooklyn DIY venue Death By Audio, was filled with punk women and men wearing neon balaclavas to honor Pussy Riot. The latter punk performance crew has been targeted in Russia for protesting Putin the day before his election, and three of its members -- Maria Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Ekaterina Samucevich -- now face up to seven years in prison for simply voicing their opinions. Many punk scions have spoken out in support of the riot grrrl-influenced Pussy Riot, including Bikini Kill's Tobi Vail and Chicana punk goddess Alice Bag, and the proceeds from the show went to Pussy Riot's legal fees, so it was appropriate that Brooklyn feminist band Shady Hawkins opened their set with a song called "Not My Comrades," led by the vibrato growls of lead singer/Tumblr star Suzy-X. [SPIN]
Adam Horovitz, whose wife is Kathleen Hanna of OG-riot girl band Bikini Kill, showed solidarity with the Free Pussy Riot! folks in his first public appearance since the passing of his good friend and bandmate MCA. Ad-Rock's appearance at Death by Audio was part of a benefit event on 6/12 for the Russian punk crew who are currently in prison after staging a protest against president Vladimir Putin. The evening saw live performances from Heliotropes, Shady Hawkins and Tin Vulva.

Heliotropes' next live show goes down in a little less than a week from now, where the band will team with Mitten and Friend Roulette to play Union Pool on June 21st. $8 gets you in the door.

No disrespect meant to Ad-Rock, but he is starting to look like Norton from the Honeymooners.

I always thought Kathleen Hanna was an angry lesbian, until I found out that she married Ad-Rock.

adrock is nowhere near 60, more mid 40s.. and none of you will have an ounce of the swag, let alone hold a candle to his legacy.

horovitz is forever a kid at heart

now go away

and nothing's cooler than sitting on your ass in front of your computer throwing age and race based insults at people who actually give a shit about human rights and are doing something about it.

Ad-Rock plugs in his laptop into a mixer and calls it djing. Mix Master Mike should slap him across the face.
