Advance tickets

"Soapbox preachers such as Frank Turner and Jon McClure might seem to be saturating the protest song market, but Chris T-T has something extra to offer. When he’s not championing the cause of social justice in familiar fashion, he’s exploring relationship dynamics with warmth and intelligence (see: ‘Love Is Not Rescue’, ‘Tall Woman’). Still, it’s when Chris goes back to his ranty roots that he’s most inspiring. ‘Elephant In The Room’ is a case in point, with its stirring rallying cry: “I remembered the previous centuries before the word freedom replaced just being free/A sleight of hand to steal our democracy/We can still win.” Fighting talk, just when we need it."
