Russian Politician Leads Charge for Pussy Riot’s Freedom

PRiot

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has called for punk band Pussy Riot’s freedom, according to the Associated Press.

The trio of ladies are up for appeal on October 1. Although it is very much in President Vladmir Putin’s hands, this could be a sign of the tides changing.

The band was arrested for and found guilty of hooliganism earlier this year for a protest aimed at Putin that took place in a church. The band was nearly unheard of until their support from several famous acts – including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Madonna, and Green Day – and the case became known as a freedom of speech case internationally.

If you haven’t yet already seen the protest that caused the arrest, here’s your video:

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
