Avtograf, the rock band that represented the Soviet Union in a satellite performance for 1985's "Live Aid" mega-concert, has arrived in the U.S. for the beginning of an American concert tour. The band's first performance is set for tonight at the Nightclub 930 in Washington, followed by one-night performances later in the week at New York's Drums nightclub and at Channel in Boston. The five-man group, all conservatory-trained musicians who were named the Soviet Union's laureate band in 1986, recently traveled through Western Europe.
