The stream will be available for 72 hours following the original broadcast.
Donations will be sought for Steven Van Zandt’s educational Teachrock organization. “We’re keeping the Arts in the DNA of the public education system,” said Van Zandt in a press release. “We’re empowering teachers with a methodology to teach a generation that is smarter, faster, and has absolutely no patience; and we’re eventually going to affect the dropout rate.”
