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.

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!).
