Pussy Riot

Members of Pussy Riot will appear in Brooklyn for the Amnesty International Human Rights Concert at Barclays Center on Wednesday (2/5) (introduced by Madonna). That won't be NYC's only chance to see the ladies coming from Russia though. They'll stay in NYC to appear at West Village gastropub The Spotted Pig (2/6) (314 West 11th St) the next day for a Voice Project reception and fundraiser. The Voice Project "were instrumental to Pussy Riot while they were in prison and it is  a Foundation Anna Gabriel (Peter's daughter) & Hunter Heaney set up to support Artists in oppressive areas-this is the group that was vital to their survival while imprisoned, not to take away anything from the other agencies, sending food, clothing, and fundraising for them."

The event will be hosted by Kim Gordon, Sean Ono Lennon, Ken Friedman, Questlove,  Maggie Gyllanhaal and Peter Sarsgaard. Tickets (including VIP options) are on sale now.

Fuck these racist women.

wow, something else Sean Lennon can glom onto.

I guess his attempt at being a rapper 15 years ago didn't pay off?

Anyone want to interrupt their self branding events with a childish act of protest? I'm sure they'd understand, right?

150 go try that and enjoy the articles about how you've compared protesting oppression to meta-sarcasm.

I hope they play that song...wait...what song do they sing again? Can I actually listen to their music somewhere?

Still better than fishing for publicity by scaring a bunch of old women in a juvenile attempt at politcal protest. These chicks are a bunch of attention whores who picked quite easily the easiest and most pedestrian targets in history: old people attending a church service. Yeah, so punk. So revolutionary...

Listen all you cumstucklers above me, if you were sentenced to hard labor in a Russian prison and a bunch of strangers made sure you weren't forgotten about and died in there, you'd probably make the rounds as a way to say thanks. You can stop pulling your foreskin back now. It's not such a hypocritical deal.

Which one is Thurston banging?

@2:39 see the thing is if I lived in a country like Russia I would either A conform to their shitty laws or B leave and go to another country where I can express myself without such repercussions. They are criminals and were punished and got off easy.

They weren't the only thing that "got off easy" after their release ;)

Only $2000 for a VIP ticket? Wow!!!

If you scroll down the picture of them quickly, they look like Power Rangers.

***GARBAGE PAIL KIDS THE MOVIE REFERENCE*** Only one of them is hot. The others are FUG as all heck. They should imprison the others in that ugly jail from the Garbage Pail Kids movie. I'd pay $2000 a ticket to see DAT!

Their masks are nicer.

Garbage pail kids. yes, the pail kids, I would pay big bucks to see it on the big screen, Juice! Make it happen at IFCberg I will bring Gross Ross

Have they staked out a theoretically informed yet action oriented position on the savory blend of tahini, garlic, olive oil, and chickpeas?

In the Garbage Pail Kids Movie, when they go to rescue the imprisoned GPKs the guy says that they are too late, so they all died. How awful is that for a kids movie?

Why does Madonna need to stick her old gristly nose in everything?

Too bad people don't give a hoot about the many other political prisoners locked up in our own country.

Kick ass, girls!. Kick Putin's ass!

Idk I like punk and metal equally just as much :| then again I like - almost - everything this is more of a display than a punk band playing a song though, they just wanna cause chaos and get attention so people can see Putin as the corrupt dictator that he is and how his bastardized form of communism is affecting everyone, they may not be doing it in the most orthodox of ways but meh...
