PHOTOS: Protesters support jailed band at Russian Embassy

Members of the band Brenda donned balaclavas during their performance at the solidarity concert for Pussy Riot, a Russian band jailed for protesting the rule of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Alex Kozen (right), 27, is a guitarist and vocalist with the band Brenda, who performed Friday evening during a solidarity concert for Pussy Riot. He picked his dress out from a second-hand store with the help of his girlfriend (several musicians at the concert wore dresses--all the three members of Pussy Riot are women).
