Melbourne musicians and artists will gather at the GPO building in support of Pussy Riot as part of a global day of action. 

Three members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot have been in reprimand for months and face up to seven years in prison for performing a punk prayer in a Moscow cathedral earlier this year.

 

The case has captured the attention of leading musicians, including Faith No More and Patti Smith, who have called for Pussy Riot's release. Similar shows of support are expected across the nation including the release of a free Australian punk-rock compilation by Sydney-based music blog, My Sydney Riot (with Melbourne's own Damn Terran).

The free compilation, My Pussy Riot, featuring Regurgitator, Dune Rats, Damn Terran and more can be found at the My Sydney Riot. The Facebook page for the Melbourne event is here. It takes place tonight, Friday August 17 at 7pm at the Old Melbourne GPO, Corner of Bourke St Mall and Elizabeth St, Melbourne CBD.
