Pussy Riot Is Coming to Brooklyn, of Course

By

Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, two recently freed members of the Russian protest group Pussy Riot, will be at Barclays Center on February 5 for a human-rights benefit concert hosted by Amnesty International. (Although, according to the announcement, they will simply "address attendees," because they're not technically a band anymore.) Also on the bill are the Flaming Lips and Lauryn Hill, who has something in common with the guests of honor.
