Good Friday? Of course, it’s a good Friday, The Ticket will be on your newstands, apps and online. Here’s what’s in the mix…..
James Wan: nope, not another dubstep dude from London, but the Australian director (and alleged “torture porn” peddlar) behind new flick Insidious.
The Ticket Album Club: did someone mention dubstep? This month, the Album Club gather to give a thumbs up or a thumbs down to James Blake’s amazing (IMHO) debut album. But what do 31st Dail stalwarts Luke “Ming” Flanagan, Sinn Fein’s Sandra McLellan, Fine Gael’s Eoghan Murphy and Fianna Fáil’s Charlie McConalogue think? Will they agree that it’s “adventurous, exciting and challenging”? Find out tomorrow!
John Grant: drugs, booze and sweetshops.
Pop has eaten everything: Una Mullally finds out how and why has pop become the dominant force in modern music.
Jamie Lawson: Wasn’t Expecting That? No, me neither, I was expecting James Blunt. Or David Gray.
Plus reviews of new albums (including The Waterboys, Emmylou Harris, Feed, Raphael Saadiq, Bill Callahan, Jamie Woon, Cat’s Eyes, Snoop Dogg, Mariza and Monty Alexander), movies (including Arthur, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec, Pina 3D, Beastly, Fast & Furious 5, TT3D and How I Ended This Summer ) and games (Socom: Special Forces, Full House Poker), listings, news and much, much more.
That’s your winning Ticket, tomorrow in The Irish Times 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for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. It’s all go at the Glen Abbey show.
