Tonight at Death By Audio, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz of the Beastie Boys will spin a DJ set during a benefit show for the Russian punk band Pussy Riot, who have been in prison since this spring for alleged "hooliganism" stemming from their public performances and might spend up to seven more years there, depending on how their case works out. (You can read more about Pussy Riot's travails here.) Tonight's DJ gig will be the first public appearance by Ad-Rock since the death of his bandmate Adam "MCA" Yauch last month.

The show is put on by the feminist collective Permanent Wave, and will also include sets by three Brooklyn bands: Heliotropes, Shady Hawkins and TinVulva. Admission is $7 or more, and all money raised will go toward the band's legal bills.
