AboutIn December 2009 artists, musicians and activists took their creativity to the streets of Copenhagen for the Climate Summit.â¨The Gluts (Gina Birch, Kaffe Matthews and Hayley Newman) performed their eco-electro** climate inspired musical Café Carbon there too. For this one-night-only event they will perform songs from Café Carbon interspersed with presentations by invited artists and activists; The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination, The People Speak (and their Planetary Pledge Pyramid), Question Time, photographer Kristian Buus and filmmaker Emily James will all share stories of the summit with room for thought and spritzed chat hosted by Mikey Weinkove. The evening will also include a take-away live-press zine, designed and printed on the spot by The Ladies of the Press*.
Come enjoy a drink (or two) at our COP15 Café and choose songs from a menu of starters, mains and desserts. Dipped globalised food production, roasted carbon trading, seared hunting and gathering, tossed gluttony, squeezed famine with lashings of passion are all on the menu tonight. Join friends and scoff up some delectable music, art and activism; a veritable cornucopia of the out of date/time and tune, but we bet there won't be any leftovers on your plates.
**But what kind of music is this new eco-electro genre? Think George Monbiot meets Lady Gaga and her twin sisters, that should get you there!
