Björk, Vivian Girls Show Support for Pussy Riot | News | Pitchfork

“Björk selling T-shirts online, Vivian Girls playing L.A. benefit August 27

Following their two-year prison sentence last week, artists have stepped up to take further action in support of jailed Russian punk band Pussy Riot.

Björk, who recently dedicated “Declare Independence” to the band, is now selling Pussy Riot T-shirts in her webstore to help the group pay legal costs, and prevent their children from being put into foster care. That’s one design, above; another is below. Men’s and women’s sizes are available for £20 each with all profit to Pussy Riot.

On August 27, Vivian Girls will play a Pussy Riot benefit show at the Smell in L.A. The lineup also includes Pangea, Haim, and Kremlin Head (which features members of No Age and Mika Miko performing punk covers). Proceeds will benefit the Pussy Riot Legal Defense Fund; tickets are on sale now.”
