Pussy Riot is touring North America for the first time ever. They will play at the Turf Club in St. Paul on Saturday night. 

The band, which formed in Moscow in 2011, is better known for its politics than for its music. This week they released a statement with a new song called "Bad Apples" which reads in part: "Hope you are not going to like our new track, since it's dedicated to really disgusting things. Hope you will turn it off, go out and act."
