Fri, Jun 21, 2013, 08:18


Irishwomen united: Leanne Harte on her return to the music industry after her flush of teen stardom, her change of style and how being a ’gay artist’ isn’t all she’s about; New York-based Dubliner Sorcha Richardson on big cities, illness and “That Kind Of Dark” and profiles of some of the country’s best female solo artists.

A Haunted House: 13 years since the Wayans brothers hit box-office gold with spoof Scary Movie, Marlon Wayans on why he’s returning to the genre

ABC: Martin Fry is still reading from “The Lexicon Of Love”. Plus five acts to catch at next weekend’s Westport Festival

Spike Island: Elliot Tittensor (AKA Carl from Shameless) on his role in the flick about the Stone Roses’ seminal 1990 gig

Booking the cooks: Willy Mason’s recipe for fish tacos.

Plus CD reviews (including Kanye West, KT Tunstall, Austra, Thundercat, Lloyd Cole, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Noah Preminger, Hugh Tinney, Joel Sarakula, Cecilia Bartoli etc), film reviews (Before Midnight, Like Someone in Love, Shun Li and the Poet, A Haunted House DC, Snitch, Citadel, I Am Breathing, World War Z, Spike Island), games, apps, listings, movie quiz, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times today 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for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Anyone else doing a double wager on Clare and Dublin for the weekend?
