In The Ticket today, we look at how county councils around the land are funding rock’n'roll, Eoin Butler gets punished for something truly terrible and is despatched to Limerick to hang out with Smiths and Morrissey fans, Brian Boyd tags Asher Roth as rap’s great white hope and we talk to Laura Izibor. The New Music slots go to Those Darlins, The Do, Detroit Social Club, Deastro, Ilex and The Candides and Lauren Murphy’s Music News covers 10 years of Raidió na Gaeltachta’s An Taobh Tuathail show, MGMT vs the French government and why Elton John and his peers need a dig-out.

CD of the Week comes from Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band and there are reviews of new releases by Harlem Shakes, Magic Magic, The Horrors, Director, Metric, The Wave Pictures, King Creosote, Emm Gryner and more.

In the cinemas this week, the new flicks are X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Is Anybody There?, Helen and Hannah Montana: The Movie. There’s also an interview with JJ Abrams about retooling Star Trek, Donald Clark’s Weekly Movie Quiz and loads of Film News.
