The Pussy Riot / CBGB Tee – Because Live Nation’s Font Isn’t Nearly As Iconic

Amnesty International boasts they’ve “partnered with CBGB to demand the release of feminist punk rock group ‘Pussy Riot”, though presumably they mean the feminist punk rock group, PUSSY RIOT (unless there’s a faux “Pussy Riot” who’ve also been imprisoned). Putting aside for a moment what it means for A.I. to “partner” with a registered trademark (as opposed to an actual functioning venue), did anyone consider the not-so-tiny irony?  During it’s heyday, CBGB pulled the plug on performances by Missing Foundation and the Dwarves.  That’s not say Pussy Riot wouldn’t have been welcomed with open arms, had they been knocking around the Lower East Side 30 years ago.  They just would’ve had to watch all the plum gigs go to Rude Buddha.
