Mick Jagger's 'Doom and Gloom' Video Rocks Into Sandy Benefit Concert December 12 @ Madison Square Garden

The legends of the music world rock into Madison Square Garden tomorrow night December 12 for a massive benefit to raise much-needed funds for Hurricane Sandy victims. The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Paul McCartney, Bon Jovi and The Who will headline the concert.

The 12-12-12 concert broadcast begins at 7:30 EST and will be broadcast live on CBS stations, HBO, Palladia, AMC and Cooking Channel. Websites streaming the concert live tomorrow night include AOC.com, Hulu.com, People.com and YouTube.com.

Every penny sold from ticket sales will go directly to Sandy victims through the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which provides material, money and aid to local organizations that are serving families and individuals in the regions hardest hit by the storm, in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Long Island.

Rolling Stones Turn ‘Doom and Gloom’ Into Sandy Support

Above is the Rolling Stones smashing, controversial new video with ‘Prometheus’ star Noomi Rapace wildly stirring up trouble in four minutes of amazing talent. Mick Jagger just keeps on rolling’ in the damning social commentary to support the new single ‘Doom and Gloom’. We assume that the Rolling Stones will play ‘Doom and Gloom’ tomorrow night at the Hurricane Sandy 12-12-12 benefit.

The video is directed by Rapace’s fellow Swede Jonas Akerlund who made Madonna’s ‘Ray Of Light’ video, as well as a controversial video for Prodigy hit ‘Smack My Bitch Up.’

Also on stage will be Dave Grohl, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Kanye West, Roger Waters, Eric Clapton, Alicia Keys and Billy Joel.

Film | NYC Dark on Vimeo by Jared Levy

NYC Dark from Already Alive on Vimeo.

 

Seeing lower Manhattan without power was a surreal experience. This is traditionally a city that never sleeps. One in which the lights are always on. One that is always bustling with people. When the lights went out it was wholly different. This piece is meant to capture and relay the feeling of what it was like to walk around the darkened streets of lower Manhattan.

Northeast Braces for New Storms, Snow, Sleet and New Power Outages | Lower Manhattan Buildings Face Massive Cleanup

Volunteer Fabrizzio Avila, 15, bundles up from the cold as he rests near donated clothing in the Midland Beach neighborhood in the Staten Island borough New York, Nov. 4, 2012, in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. (Craig Ruttle/AP Photo)About 20-40,000 homeless people are bracing for more bad weather as a Nor’easter heads for the battered New York/New Jersey area. Cold air will drop wind chill temperatures to 20 degrees in the areas most severely impacted by Sandy. Wind gusts are expected up to 55 mph by Wednesday.

More than 1.4 million homes remain without power, entering a second week. The coming storm could further delay restoration efforts, while adding new outages. Up to a foot of snow is expected in inland areas throughout the Northeast.

A Powerless New York During Hurricane Sandy New York Magazine

A bit gallingly, downtown’s most foresighted and well-heeled swells had already relocated uptown. Graydon Carter and Anna Wintour, among others, were said to have taken up residence at the Mark; a lot of the younger crowd, led by Emma Watson, were at the Carlyle. Uptown was the new downtown. On Halloween Night, Bemelmans was packed.

Lower Manhattan, rather than the ultimate destination, became a place to go through to get somewhere else, as the enormous traffic jams attested. Downtown was driveover country. At night, it seemed to be a natural landscape, a dark canyonland, gorgeous and lonely. As in all New York disasters, New Yorkers weren’t strangers anymore. Out surveying the damage with flashlights, people stopped to talk in tones of hushed amazement. Neighbors needed food and news.

Future Is in Limbo for the Damaged Buildings Close to the Water’s Edge New York Times

A dark, stark, problematic future faces scores of New YOrk City business and apartment buildings in lower Manhattan. The financial district is in shambles — perhaps worse than on September 11, 2001.

About 100 buildings south of Chambers Street will be opening and have electrical power but no steam. Therefore, there is no heat in the buildings as temperatures plummet.

Other buildings with, or close to, flooded parking garages have a more serious problem, resulting from gasoline, oil and other chemicals that poisoned the waters that flooded these structures.

Now, the buildings themselves must undergo special cleanups before people are allowed in. These cleanups could take weeks with limited services available to do them.
