Puta! Patain! 母狗! Miststück! In Spanish, French, Chinese, German -- in all the languages spoken across Long Island, Staten Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, and more of the Northern east coast people are saying it about her: B*tch!

Even if your house/car/lights/heat was spared Hurricane Sandy's wrath, you probably cursed her out a couple of times too while waiting on a mile-long line for gas or after the 3rd day of being stuck at home because you couldn't travel to work or school. While normalcy has been restored for hundreds of thousands of people, many others are still trying to find--let alone pick up--the pieces to their homes, cars, boats, businesses-- their hopes and dreams manifest then swiftly swept away by an act of nature. In efforts to alleviate the hard work of rebuilding lives and infrastructure, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, The Madison Square Garden Company and The Weinstein Company have come together to present 12.12.12, a Concert For Sandy Relief. As you can guess, the event is scheduled for December 12th at Madison Square Garden with performances by Kanye West, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, The Who, Alicia Keys, Jon Bon Jovi, and Billy Joel. Keep your eyes open in the coming days for more on tickets and VIP packages; on-sale info; partners, sponsors, and performers; and telecast information. The proceeds from the concert will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund which is providing money, material and know-how to local organizations that are serving families and individuals in the regions hardest hit by the storm.
