The Mysteries of Pittsburgh


• Think about helping Beating Windward Press fund new art for its Doc Voodoo pulp fiction series. The swag is considerable, like this t-shirt.


• Members of Pussy Riot! are serving time in a Russian jail for the charge of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred." What they did was perform "Mother of God, Drive Putin Away" in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. While these women are rightly venerated as warriors of free speech, and the phrase "Free Pussy Riot!" is now famous as a movement. What I learned this week, though, is that besides all of that, their music also happens to be fucking wild and should be respected by anyone who has an ear for punk.

Listen to their EP, Kill the Sexist.
