PJ Harvey: the return of Polly-Jean as she talks global politics and new album “Let England Shake” with Sinead Gleeson.

Rabbit Hole: the actor, writer and director John Cameron Mitchell talks about his new film

Sea Of Bees: how Californian folkie Julie Baenziger took up the guitar to impress a girl and hasn’t looked back since.

Plus: reviews of music releases from James Blake (CD of the Week slot for the very tall dubstep dude’s self-titled debut album), The Streets, Owensie, Funeral Party, Teddy Thompson, Smith Westerns, The Sand Band, Mike Neilsen, “The Fighter OST” and more, plus new movies on the block including Brighton Rock, The Sanctum, A Little Bit Of Heaven, Rabbit Hole and The Fighter.

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

DJ plug: I’m DJ-ing at Phantom’s First Friday at The Academy (Middle Abbey St., Dublin 1) tonight. It’s a DJ battle and I’m up against Pure Morning hosts Richie and Charlotte. Yep, they need two DJs to take me on – and they’ll still get their asses kicked. Doors open at 11pm and admission is a fiver.

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 Plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot.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 be tight like frogs ass.
