Pussy Riot Duo Book Brooklyn Show

Feb5ConcertLogoThis promises to be quite the sideline attraction. Per a statement released today by Amnesty International and picked up by the New York Observer‘s Matthew Kassel, formerly incarcerated Pussy Riot members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina will be part of the “Bringing Human Rights Home” charity-event bill February 5 at Barclays Center. Three days after the Super Bowl:

“We, more than anyone, understand how important Amnesty’s work is in connecting activists to prisoners.”

“A month ago, we were freed from Russian prison camps. We will never forget what it’s like to be in prison after a political conviction.”

To paraphrase Russian stand-up comic Yakoff Smirnoff, “what a concert!” And what a thrill for these two women to have rightfully graduated, within the space of a few months, from labor detail to the likes of Lauryn Hill and Cake. Tickets on sale via Ticketmaster.
