In The Ticket today, Michael Dwyer previews what to expect in the cinemas this summer, we look back at 20 years of gigging in Whelan’s (with contributions from assorted On The Record readers and a slideshow put together by Irish Times snapper Bryan O’Brien) and there’s an interview with Today FM’s Paul McLoone. The New Music slots are occupied by The Knux, Two Door Cinema Club, The The Phenomenal Handclap Band, Tidal District, Wave Machines and Hunter-Gatherer, Lauren Murphy’s Music News covers Delorentos, reaction to the Pirate Bay decision and Castle Palooza, Brian Boyd also focuses on Pirate Bay in Revolver, Eoin Butler rounds up new singles and downloads in Shuffle and NOFX’s Mike Burkett discusses what’s on his rider.
