Of all the human rights taken for granted in 20th century America, is there any greater than that of free speech? Many are rightly outraged that three young women from the band Pussy Riot are facing four-year jail sentences for staging a performance of public protest against the Russian government and Orthodox Church. Rather than canonize these individuals for their riotous act, people around the world are heeding their call to awareness and activism by staging events of their own. Tonight's Portland version features female prowess across a spectrum of performers, from avant-rap troupe Sistafist—who promise the solidaritous use of masks, inverted crosses, and nudity—to a stand-up set from the viciously self-aware and hilarious Kristine Levine. Proceeds will benefit the families of the incarcerated. MARANDA BISH
