    Pussy Riot Coming to Brooklyn

    Two members of Russian punk group Pussy Riot, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (R) and Maria Alyokhina (L), answer journalists' questions during their news conference in Moscow on December 27, 2013. A freed member of the Pussy Riot punk band said Friday the rockers still wanted Russian President Vladimir Putin out of power, adding she would like freed ex-tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky to stand in elections and replace him.

    Will Putin get front-row seats? On Feb. 5, the Barclays Center will be hosting Amnesty International’s Bringing Human Rights Home concert, and two members of Pussy Riot will attend, after recently being released from labor camps. In a statement, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina wrote that, “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. We have vowed to continue helping those who remain behind bars and we hope to see you all at the Amnesty International concert on February 5th in Brooklyn!"
