In The Ticket today, Irish actress Saoirse Ronan discusses her rapid rise, there’s a look at the Glee effect on the music industry and interviews with the Dublin-bound tUnE-yArds and The Leisure Society.

In New Music, it’s thumbs aloft for Penguin Prison, Warpaint, The Selfish Replicators, Veronica Falls and Strait Laces, while there’s Music News stories on Tinnitus Awareness Week in the UK, Autoban’s Lonely Hearts gig and the latest batch of instores at Dublin’s Tower Records.

CD of the Week comes from Marina & The Diamonds and there are also reviews of releases by Shearwater, Field Music, Peter Gabriel, Princeton, Luke Slott, Captain Moonlight, PiL (the “Plastic Box” compilation), “A Single Man” soundtrack, Kíla, Jason & The Scorchers and others. Plus Eoin Butler’s lowdown on the singles and downloads in Shuffle and the best guide to going out in the land.

New movies opening in cinemas today include The Wolfman, A Single Man, Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief, Ponya and Valentine’s Day. Plus for the film buffs: the weekly movie quiz, DVD reviews and Reel News.

The Ticket: it ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it.

The OTR noticeboard is now open for business. Please feel free to 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 Events with a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot.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 cutting down on those plugs which appear every week (you know who you are) so don’t say you weren’t warned. Is it just me or is there a stretch in the evenings?
