In The Ticket today, there’s a round-up of the best bands I saw at last week’s South By Southwest festival, interviews with Ladyhawke and PJ Harvey and John Parish and film director Richard “Four Weddings” Curtis talks about his new pirate radio flick, The Boat That Rocked.

The CD of the Week comes from David Kitt and there are also reviews of new releases from Pet Shop Boys, Peter Bjorn & John, Therapy?, The Antlers, Waaves, Eugene Donegan, Soap & Skin, Arne Weinberg, Enrico Rava and many more.

New Music picks this week are DM Stith and And So I Watch You From Afar, while Brian Boyd expresses his disapproval of Japan’s men-only gigs in Revolver. As always, Lauren Murphy has the Music News and Eoin Butler splits the atom with the Singles Reviews.

Across the aisle, there are reviews of new flicks The Damned United, Genova, Two Lovers, Knowing, Tyson and Traitor.

That’s our plug. Now, over to you….
