In this week’s issue of The Ticket, there’s an interview with Dirty Projectors on the occasion of the release of new album “Bitte Orca”, a preview of the Stranger Than Fiction documentary festival, a look at the Street Performance World Championships as it revs up for days out in Cork and Dublin and Brian Boyd on Vevo vs YouTube.

There is New Music love for The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Legion Of Two, An Horse, The Mummers, Bibio and Reminder. In Music News, Lauren Murphy reports on a forthcoming Jeff Buckley tribute gig, Phil Spector whinging about prison life and continental love for Fight Like Apes.

CD of the Week comes from Neil Young and there are also reviews of releases from Jimmy Behan, Speech Debelle, The Low Anthem, Toddla T, Cass McCombs, Placebo, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Nouvelle Vague, Losoul, Jesse Dee, Larry Beau and others. Plus Eoin Butler dishes out the wisecracks along with the singles.

New film releases this week are Looking For Eric, The Hangover, The Last House On The Left (man, they’ve taken out TV ads for that one like they’re going out of fashion), Red Cliff and Doghouse (it gets one star so the review is probably more entertaining than the film).

Plus a report from China on John Woo’s “magnum opus” Red Cliff, an interview with Bradley “The Hangover” Cooper, DVD reviews, weekly movie quiz and much, much more.

The Ticket: more laughs than Tommy Tiernan
