In today’s issue of The Ticket, Fionn Regan talks about his new album “The Shadow of An Empire”, there’s a New Music special from the annual Eurosonic festival, Donald Clarke previews this year’s Sundance film festival and Brian Boyd has a look around Dublin’s latest new venue, the Grand Canal Theatre. Plus Music News stories on Haiti benefit gigs, the Temple Bar Trad festival and the death of Kate McGarrigle.

Album of the week comes from Four Tet and there are also reviews of new releases from Beach House (hear one of the finest albums of the year for free here), The Soft Pack, Mick Hanly, Yeti Lane, Erland & The Carnival, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Sarsparilla, Coscán and many more. Plus Eoin Butler’s review of the latest singles and downloads in Shuffle.

New flicks in the cinemas this week include A Prophet, Brothers, The Boys Are Back and Ninja Assassin. Plus DC’s Screenwriter column, movie news and the weekly film quiz.

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

Haiti benefit plug: Swell Season and Frames’ frontman Glen Hansard plays a solo gig at Whelan’s in Dublin on Sunday (January 24). Admission is €15. See today’s Ticket and this OTR post for details of other benefit gigs. If there are any other Haiti benefit gigs you wish to plug, please feel free to list them in the comments below.

Banter plug: don’t forget the first Banter sessions of ’10 happen tomorrow at the Twisted Pepper (Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1). Full details of the two panel discussions here.

The OTR community bulletin board is now open for business. Plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember to declare an interest where one should be declared. Please note that plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense. Events with a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. I’m also going to start cutting down on those plugs which appear every week (you know who you are) so don’t say you weren’t warned. D Fence!
