Performing at the first Concert for the Climate, David Rovics – a brilliant political singer/songwriter – nailed our current Trumpian situation with biting lyrics and rousing guitar. Several of his songs directly addressed climate change.
Local guitarist Frank Exum opened with a beautiful set of classical instrumentals. Alan Northcutt, MD, provided a lecture covering ongoing impacts of anthropogenic climate change and distributed a comprehensive handout covering small to large steps everyone can take to combat climate change.
There was a fantastic spread of vegetarian snacks provided, ranging from chocolate hummus to stuffed celery. “Dire Predictions,” a beautiful climate change book by Michael Mann, was given as a door prize to ten attendees.
FOP/C would like to thank all our guests, who were treated to an enjoyable and educational event. Thanks go out to all FOP/C members who helped out in multiple ways to create a memorable evening: Ana, Carmen Saenz, Serena, Harrison, Sherrell & Bruce Huff, Travis Hipp, Latayla Drake, Adrian Northcutt, and everyone else who contributed. Thanks also to the Jubilee Theater for providing the venue, and the director, Trent, for all his help.
David’s tour continues on to Houston and then to Scandinavia and Germany. His music can be accessed at www.davidrovics.bandcamp.com.
