Live Earth rocks world on 7/7/7

Live Earth started in Asia with an ancient Aboriginal instrument. Then a holographic image of Al Gore appeared on stage. Then it moved on to London and Madonna. Concerts in Sydney, Tokyo and Shanghai kicked off 22 hours of music by more than 150 artists in a round-the-globe series of shows designed to raise awareness of climate change.

Metallica, the Police and Kanye West were among the top-billed acts listed for the biggest concerts, in London and New Jersey. re’s campaign to force global warming onto the international political stage inspired the event.

Appearing on the Tokyo stage as a hologram, the former vice president called global warming the greatest challenge facing our planet but told concert goers they could solve it by acting together.

There’s a lot of discussion on http://twitter.com and other social discussion sites. 

http://liveearth.spaces.live.com/ is the Live Earth Blog.  And you can watch the concert on the Internet (caveat: you must have Internet Explorer to see) at http://liveearth.org

From the official site:

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore joined Live Earthers in London and Hamburg live via satellite from a special event on the capitol lawn in Washington D.C., where he asked his globe-spanning audience to join him in signing the Live Earth 7-Point Pledge.

Al Gore quoted an old African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together…Well, we need to go far, quickly.”

Gore was framed by a view of the Capitol building at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and stood before an at-capacity, overflowing crowd who turned out to see Gore despite stifling heat and a last-minute announcement.

Following his remarks, Gore introduced one of America’s favorite country pairs, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, who performed the duet “We Shall be Free.”

Mr. Gore will immediately depart D.C. to catch a train for the next installment in our series, “Mr. Gore Goes to New York”.

Duran Duran Live Earth Wembley Stadium 7 July 2007 Pic Guy Eppel

 Taking the stage at Wembley Stadium Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon made a joke about some of the acts who had to travel using their own planes to the show.

“Before we start everyone who did not arrive in a private jet put your hands in the air,” asked the singer, raising his own along with the crowds’.

 

SXSW day parties

Do you want the inside track on parties at SXSW.  “Corky” has the scoop in the following link followed by a brief blurb:

Corcoran in Austin 360

WED: Day | Night THU: Day | Night FRI: Day | Night SAT: Day | Night

It used to be the mantra of the first morning at South by Southwest: “Where are all the cool parties?” Everybody would hit town knowing of one or two soirees where the free booze flowed and the gratis chow was spread out on tables, but they’d have to ask around to get a more complete picture.

Nowadays, the party scene is revealed more than a month before the first Shiner Bock is cracked — and then overrated — by an out-of-towner. Internet sites such as showlistaustin.com, donewaiting.com and austinist.com collect party info and spread the news, giving readers weeks to get in good with the party hosts, to get that all-important invite.

Here are some of the things we’ve culled from those sites and brooklynvegan.com. Many are free and open to the public:
