By way of a shout out to everyone hitting the streets and organizing protests this weekend. To the C&L Crew (Go Tina!) for delivering Pizzas to the hungry Occupy L.A. crowds and all the other truly amazing people (way to go Michelle!) taking part in the 99% Movement, here's something I was able to track down that was recorded just this past week. As you know, the Rock In Rio Festival is the biggest gathering of music this side of the Atlantic. Last reported some 600,000 people are partaking in some of the world's best as well as Brazil's best music. It's a massive celebration and it's a coming together of the world under one vast roof.

And maybe that's a little of what it's been like today. People coming together for one purpose and doing it in a mass, peaceful way; trying to bring sanity back from it's way-too-long vacation.

So if you're setting up camp, printing up signs, organizing rallies or just chilling, here's Metallica's complete set from last week's Rock In Rio. It's split up between two players, since the concert clocks in a little over 2 hours.

Enjoy. See you back at City Hall tomorrow. Keep it goin' - keep it real.
