No need to refresh your browser- this is not an editing error or a dream-like illusion of your feminist imagination. Musical heroines Pussy Riot will perform in Amnesty International’s Bringing Human Rights Home concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on February 5.

“We are happy to support Amnesty International’s work on behalf of human rights and political prisoners,” said Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina, the two members of Pussy Riot that were recently released after serving 21 months in prison.

“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. We have vowed to continue helping those who remained behind bars and we hope to see you all at the Amnesty International concert on February 5th in Brooklyn!”

For tickets and more information, visit the Amnesty International event page. Imagine Dragons, The Flaming Lips, The Fray, Tegan and Sara, Colbie Caillat, Cold War Kids, Ms. Lauryn Hill, and CAKE will be performing too!
