This is probably one of the most important interviews you’re going to watch involving music, dance & free expression in the surveillance age you’ll see in a long time. Pussy Riot stands strong & unbowed, taunting Putin to re-arrest them, discussing the secret number of Pussy Rioters (is that a word yet?) including the ones still jailed, and explaining their trip to the USA. Besides raising awareness, they’re also meeting prison & human rights activists in an effort to learn more about how to fight these kinds of tactics. Props to them & as always, #freepussyriot.

Daft Punk’s first live appearance anywhere on the planet in years will be on The Colbert Report. Confirmed by Pitchfork and a number of other sources, this is the first rumor of a DP appearance in 2013 that holds water. Oh, and Colbert tweeted it too.
This Tuesday 8/6, don’t miss Stephest Colbchella ‘013: The Song of the Summer Of the Century with special guest Daft Punk. Details to come.

Besides his whole appearance on The Jimmy Fallon show where he just walks on stage, dances to Get Lucky for a minute, and then leaves. YouTube video for the interested:
There you have it folks. Don’t miss this Tuesday’s Colbert Report if you’re into the Daftest of Punks. An amazing pick up for Colbchella 2013, and a huge re-introduction for Daft Punk to the US audience.
