Thanks to all who made it to last Friday’s Animated Earth Concert and who helped organise the event – it was a lovely evening of music and animation with lots of laughs and we hope you enjoyed it!
Many thanks also to Camden Council for their help in promoting the show.
Susan’s short review of the evening is below:
Ingredients: Camden Friends of the Earth, a cartoonist, drinks, “A Green Victoria Wood”, Anna Ware from Camden Council sustainability team, Luke Concannon, the Clean British Energy campaign, and a big beautiful church…A recipe for: a fun night of singing songs about making the world a better place!
Last Friday Camden Friends of the Earth hosted the second show on Jess Gold’s Animated Earth Concert Tour, which is touring around England this Autumn. Friday’s concert, in support of the Clean British Energy campaign, included songs on fossil fuels as well as eating less meat, water and how we suffer from an addiction to cars!
You might assume that the show would be a little bit depressing, but cheeky and fun is probably the best way to describe it. Jess got the crowd singing with her argumentative song about flying (“You don’t have to fly…Yes we do!…No you don’t!”) and then lulled us all with a beautiful song about water. “Car Addiction” entertained us with Jess and Haruna Komatsu’s double act on whether a sexy body or a sexy car is preferred! Amongst many other highlights was the live animation accompanying songs, inspired by audience suggestions (which ranged from roast chicken to taxis!).
There are three more London shows that you can catch, and I recommend that you do – in St John’s Wood, West Kilburn and Waterloo on the 18th, 19th and 23rd September, see the tour website for details, www.animatedearth.co.uk.
