IT’S EVERYWHERE! OMG! The 12-12-12 Concert for Hurricane Sandy Relief, benefiting the Robin Hood Fund, the largest independent poverty fighting organization in the New York area, is being broadcast and streamed on almost every major website and TV channel in the US, and is accessible to over 2 billion worldwide. Heck it’s even on the Cooking Channel! And the Military History Channel. Maybe Israelis and Palestinians will bond over Billy Joel and Kanye West, and we’ll have world peace as well as raising fund to help Hurricane Sandy relief efforts!

And we’re here liveblogging it with you, from the opening (rumored to be Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band) to the close (PaulMcCartney takes on Kurt Cobain’s role in Nirvana. Please no one introduce him to Courtney Love!).

In between, there’s Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Eric Clapton, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, The Rolling Stones,  Band, Eddie Vedder, The Who, and Roger Waters. Four hours of music and global mind meld. I think we are ordering either Thai food or pizza delivered, and we’ll have sparkling water, soda, champagne, and absinthe on hand.

Okay, let’s get ready to watch and talk!
