The Lexapalooza Festival celebrates its fifth anniversary this year and returns to The Flowerpot on October 9th with yet another stellar line up in aid of the Breast Cancer Campaign.

The event opens at mid-day on Saturday and the fun continues through ’til 11pm. Entrance to the festival is free although organisers do ask for a voluntary donation of at least £3 per person.

All the proceeds from these events go to the charity Breast Cancer Campaign. Their mission is to beat breast cancer by funding innovative world-class research and to understand how breast cancer develops, leading to improved diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure. Lexapalooza has so far raised over £6000 for Breast Cancer Campaign with its previous annual one-day events, and aim to raise at least £1000 at this year’s event.

After a busy year writing, recording, and playing shows both here and in America, influential cult singer Chris T-T has rather excitedly  announced some UK gigs news as well as details of brand new material.

“British pop’s street-poet laureate and unsung genius” (The Sunday Times) will be performing throughout October along with his old friends The Broken Family Band on their farewell tour for three dates followed by a run of intimate solo gigs.

Chris T-T was most recently playing at London’s all-day Lexapalooza Lite event helping to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign.

The October gigs offer fans the first chance to hear tracks from Chriss T-T’s forthcoming album Love Is Not Rescue, which is due for release early 2010. The new album is far removed from Chris’s last work, the heavier and rockier Capital, instead we are promised an introspective and pensive album where the artist lays bare beautiful lyrics over delicate melodies.

If you simply can’t wait for the new album Love Is Not Rescue, get along and see Chris T-T perform some of the tracks along with other more experimental unreleased stuff at the following gigs:
