For those who weren’t able to make it last night, the "Death2Prisons, Freedom2Protest" benefit for Pussy Riot — presented by Red Wedge, the Rebel Arts Collective and co-sponsored by SlutWalk — was an undeniable success! The energy from the crowd was incredible, the music was punishingly…

suggested donation of five dollars at the door & cash bar too.
It has been a year since three members of Russian feminist punk collective Pussy Riot — Masha, Nadia and Katia — were convicted of “hooliganism” for their “punk prayer” song at the Christ Our Savior Cathedral in Moscow. What started as a protest against the corrupt and bigoted Putin government has become a symbol of a young global resistance that has gripped the planet — and the repression it faces — from Moscow to Cairo, from Rio de Janeiro to Chicago. Quite simply, their struggle is our struggle, their freedom the freedom of all of us.
Proceeds from this show will go to benefit the legal defense of Nadia and Masha — the two members who remain in prison. On top of featuring a diverse array of female and gender-queer powered Chicago punk rock, speakers will briefly address the latest from Pussy Riot’s case, the struggle for women’s liberation and the repression of the queer liberation movement in Russia.

$8 entry, proceeds go to Chicago Teachers Union solidarity fund!
Schools and teachers around the country are under attack from politicians, pundits and “reformers” (read: privatizers). According to these people, education is only as good as its service to the bottom line.
But Chicago’s teachers are fighting back, and serving up inspiration for anyone who believes that education and culture are absolute rights for everyone. This benefit, sponsored by the Rebel Arts Collective, will highlight and celebrate the importance of strong teachers, strong unions and well-funded schools.
Come support your teachers as they demand the schools that the students of Chicago deserve!
$8 suggested donation at the door, cheap cash bar and revolutionary art and music all through the night. Proceeds go to benefit the Chicago Teachers Union.
