Arcade Fire: the return of the big music as Montreal art rockers Arcade Fire chat to Brian Boyd ahead of a date at Oxegen and the release of new album “The Suburbs”

The Oxegen 10: my guide to the 10 bands to catch and the 5 tunes we want to hear from each of them.

The Coronas: from backing a Beatle and playing Oxegen for the third time to being the wedding band at Brian O’Driscoll and Amy Huberman’s do, the Dublin band tell Lauren Murphy where it all went right.

Plus: reviews of music releases from Janelle Monae (CD of the Week for “The ArchAndroid” – I saw her live last night in London and she rocked), Drake, Flaming Lips, Kylie, Feeder, I Am Kloot, Horse Feathers, Richard Julian and others, and new movies rated and slated including Shrek Forever After, Heartbreaker, White Material, Tetro and Doors.

All this and more in The Ticket, in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules. Declare an interest where one should be declared. Plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense. Plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Plugs which plug the same stuff every week will also be deleted – if people ain’t interested by now, you should really get the message. We’ve got you covered, bud.
