Is the American Federal Government into concert promotion?
Two members of the unusually lame Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot, who seem to have a unusually strong media promotion team behind them, were recently released from prison and will appear at an Amnesty International concert in Brooklyn February 5th, WNYC reports.
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina are scheduled to appear during the Bringing Human Rights Home concert at the Barclays Center in New York.
It is not certain which human right they had wished to defend when they were caught trespassing in a church in Moscow. The whole episode has an air of being manufactured, as if they might appear alongside the US Federal Turds next.
Musically it is hard to understand their large global following, but politically less so.
Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina were released from prison last month after serving 21 months for hooliganism after a March 2012 arrest for giving an unauthorized offensive performance in Christ The Savior Cathedral.
It is not known whether they might do an unauthorized offensive performance in front of the Federal Reserve.
