Rockin’ the Syndrome : PUNK AS FUCK

punk-band-with-down-syndrome

A Finnish band called PKN (Pertti Kurikan Nimipaivat) will compete against 17 other bands to represent Finland at the annual EuroVision Contest, to be held this year in Vienna.

All of the members are living with Down Syndrome and/or Autism. That’s kind of a big deal and it’s awesome!

Finnish TV viewers will make the decision but PKN are already excited about the process and hoping they will make it to the grand final stage. If they make to the final stage or not, I’d say they are a huge success already!

“Pertti the guitarist is a big fan of Eurovision,” manager Kalle Pajamaa told Sputnik. “Their families are supportive as well as the fans. Even the punk scene has been very supportive for the guys.”

Pertii Kurikka, Sami Helle, Kari Aalto and Toni Valitalo believe that appearing at Eurovision will boost support for social programs to help people about Down’s Syndrome.
