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.

"This town's full of Pussy Riot types," said Andrea Collins, an artist who helped coordinate the event with Amnesty International. She staged a recreation of Pussy Riot's performance, which originally took place inside Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow, at Artomatic earlier this summer.
