Anarchy, Love, and Inclusivity

Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokonnikova will be playing at The Rabbit Hole this March 23 at 9 p.m. with Boyfriend joining as a special guest.

Pussy Riot embodies gender fluidity, love, anti-authoritarianism, matriarchy, laughter, and more, all while creating incredible music. Boyfriend is a singer, songwriter, and rapper whose new single "Dance with the Devil" features Pussy Riot.

Tolokonnikova, founder of Pussy Riot, grew up in Russia and has been releasing unique, boundary pushing music for years. Her upbeat headbanging hits feature provocative and poignant lyrics with a punk rock attitude. Tolokonnikova is both a performer and activist and in 2012 was sentenced to two years in prison for public anti-Putin activism. While in a Siberian penal colony, she continued her activism and even founded a prison punk band. She also wrote and published her own book Read and Riot: Pussy Riot's Guide to Activism. The performance is sure to be a radical, spectacular, and electric show of both political activism and scream worthy lyrics.

The Rabbit Hole is an intimate New Orleans venue on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard known for hosting unique and provocative performances. Tickets are currently on sale and are sure to sell out, so reserve yours now.
