What you’ll find in The Ticket on your newstands, app and online tomorrow:

Alabama Shakes: why the future is bright for the band heading to Ireland for a date at the Kilkenny Rhythm and Roots festival next month.
 
THEESatisfaction: Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White on a winning sound which owes a lot to old school R&B and soul.

The Limerick scene: the Shannonside buzz with a look at the bands, venues and players in the city of the Cranberries – and Rubberbandits.
 
Blank City: director Celine Danhier on her documentary film about the renegade filmmakers that emerged from downtown New York in the late 1970s and 1980s.
 
Kopek: how the hard rock and metal mob from Dublin and Meath ended up on the American Reunion soundtrack

OTR on the road in the U S of A: the latest on the road diary comes from the Big Apple.

Plus reviews of new album releases (including M Ward, Willis Earl Beal, The Gandhis, Liz Lawrence, Alabama Shakes, Dr John, The Men, Odd Future, Masumbi Kikuchi Trio, Phronesis), movies (Le Havre, A Cat in Paris, Headhunters, The Cold Light of Day, Return, Titanic 3D), games, apps, listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times tomorrow 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: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. We’re jamming.
