Fascinating fact:

Former Lcd Soundsystem star James Murphy teamed up with acclaimed hip-hop musician Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson on Friday (07Feb14) to host a special dinner in honour of freed Pussy Riot rockers Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina. The punk stars have been in the U.S. to raise the profile of their campaign for prison reform following their release from a Russian detention centre in December (13). They served just under two years behind bars on controversial hooliganism charges after performing a protest song taking aim at Russian president Vladimir Putin in 2012.
