In The Ticket today, we talk to Wilco’s laughing boy Jeff Tweedy, Jack White’s fellow Raconteur Brendan Benson, film director Kathryn Bigelow on her awesome new flick The Hurt Locker and six new-ish Irish acts about what gets them out of bed in the morning.

In New Music, there are rounds of applause for Hudson Mohawke, Pearl Harbor, Delorean, Gutsies, Gentle Friendly and Exxon Valden. In Music News, Irish bands (and fashion crisises, no doubt) hit New York, remembering Phil Lynott at 60 and the Sligo Live fest.

Album of the Week comes from Simian Mobile Disco and there are also reviews of new releases from Tinchy Stryder, Fiery Furnaces, Theoretical Girl, Sally Shapiro, “Horse Meat Disco”, Athlete, Dolores O’Riordan (another dog’s dinner of an album from her), The Proclaimers, Dust Poets, John Rich and many more.

New flicks in the cinemas this week are Inglourious Basterds, Shorts, Dance Flick and I Love You Beth Cooper. Also from the film dept: the weekly movie quiz, movie news and DVD reviews.

The Ticket: whatever it is, the Ticket has it.

Banter plug: the podcast from last Saturday’s “The A to Z of DIY” session is here

The OTR bulletin board is now open for business. Rules: plugs should be kept short and sweet or they will be edited. Plugs should be accompanies by a declaration of interest where appropriate. Plugs are not commercial ads. Have a lovely weekend, people.
