Free Pussy Riot Benefit

Saturday, September 29, at Rubber Gloves

In the wake of Russian punk band Pussy Riot's famed prison sentencing for "hooliganism with religious hatred," following their February arrest in Moscow, two North Texas activist groups are hosting a benefit show at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios. The groups include the International Socialist Organization and the Radical Alliance for Gender Equality, with punk bands Electric Vengeance, Snatch Punch, Kid Beer, Noise Tanks and The Kremlings performing. "One reason I was personally motivated to have a benefit show for Pussy Riot is because music, and punk music specifically, had a large influence over the formation of my early anti-capitalist views," says ISO organizer Liz Clinton. "We were outraged that these activists and performers were locked up simply for voicing opposition to the status quo." Rachel Watts
