@4: Actually, wonderful Kelly O posted about Pussy Riot about three months before their arrest. We continued to follow them on the blogs before writing a feature for the paper. Knowledge is fun!

I'm certain that @4 is actually President Vladimir Putin, angrily trolling the Stranger comment section.

Pussy riot? Sounds like my Friday night! Right guys? Ya! *high fives and fist bumps*

Thanks Emily!

Just as an addendum to recent events: when Madonna performed in Moscow last week she wore a backless outfit and had the words Pussy Riot written in large letters across her back. Not sure if she did something similar at her St. Pete show.
11
@10 - Right! So many musicians have stepped up to support this cause, which is rad. Madonna has a lot to say about censorship in the arts and talked about Pussy Riot's cause AND gay rights during her St Petersburg show - http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/0…

Anything happening in Seattle tonight? Pussy Riot! (I had to Google "balaclava," thought it was good to eat.)

Is there anything happening in Seattle tonight?

"Injured parties", what a joke. So sad that governments waste time and money on shit like Pussy Riot when there's so much more worse shit going on that they should really be dealing with. Putin is looking horrible right now. How do his advisers let him continue? Does he not realize how stupid he looks to the rest of the planet?

The girls of Pussy is what left over from the Soviet revolution?
The Russian society is plunged into an unprecedented skepticism, mixed with lush capital?
While some want the "Sovereign God of the Free Market", others less versed want to forget the recent past?
The Church Ortho-X, in turn, use all conceivable spaces in Kremlin ... Was once a swimming pool in the Cathedral... The scene of bizarre dance, of the girls with the rebellious pelvis, has been destroyed and rebuilt with a church in the end of the USSR ... OhMyGod!
On the other hand the opposition to Putin and the heretics of dialectic Marx and Lenin, saying the girls are condoning sexists!? (...) The Pussy don't know the difference: of right of expression with expanção market?
I want to see the centenary of the Revolution with my head up! And you buddy Camarada??

Worst band ever, horrible name, horrible "music". Bunch of feminist marxist whores and their poor pussywhipped husbands. But Tolokonnikova is fucking gorgeous and her vile behavior makes her even hotter for me.

@17 Misogynist assholes like you are exactly why Pussy Riot exists.

@17 Misogynist assholes like you are exactly why Pussy Riot exists, and exactly why millions of people around the world - women *and* men - have rallied to their support. Our only consolation is that creeps like you generally won't breed, because no woman in her right mind would willingly fuck you.

17, agreed. 18/19, your pussy is no riot.

Sad to see anyone get arrested for something such as this,but WHY is this more important then abuse of power and authority which take place on a daily basis in nearly every city in this country.WHY is racial profiling and police brutality not worth much space in the Stranger(unless a artist at Pike Place Market gets killed,then it is radical chic to question the police.).Pussy Riot MIGHT be a excellent band musically,but having seen people get arrested at Fear and Black Flag shows for amazingly questionable reasons,I personally don't find this to be that amazing.

And #20 sings:

Fap on.
Fap off.
Fap on fap off.
The Fapper.

Given that the GOP has approved a party platform which rejects abortion even in cases of rape and incest,wonder why there aren't more pussies rioting on this hemisphere.
24
Pussy rules the world...haven't the guys figured this out yet? Heehee :)

Extemists...Boy...No matter what their cause, no matter how right they may be, going to any extreme to prove a point is actually pointless. People won't change until they want to...and most people don't.
