N-Dubz: as Dublin’s run in the football continues…oh, sorry, wrong Dubz. Lauren Murphy hangs tough with grime-pop queenpin Tulisa as N-Dubz limber up for a Dublin show.

Flying Lotus: we get high with Steven Ellison as he talks superheroes, his aunt Alice Coltrane and jazz.

Milk: ahead of Europe’s first outdoor gay music festival, Brian Finnegan asks if a festival like Milk can please all of the people all of the time. Plus our top 10 divas and a Q&A with the fabulous Roisin Murphy.

Plus: reviews of music releases from Johnny Duhan (CD of the Week slot for “The Burning Word”), Stars, The Books, PVT, La Roux, Monarchy, Mt St Helen’s Vietnam Band, Best Coast, Lunfardia and others, and new movies on the block including Cats & Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore, Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, Beautiful Kate, Eccentricities of a Blonde-Haired Girl, London River, Knight & Day, Step Up 3-D and Undertow.

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 Plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot.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. Our hurling bet for the weekend – the Cats by 6 points (sorry Rebels).
