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

Summer movies: Donald Clarke’s guide to what’s hitting the silver screen from May to September.

Wild Beasts: new album “Smother” is comingatcha really soon and the band are excited.

Rakim: the microphone fiend talks to The Ticket ahead of his three-date Irish tour next week

Rush: yes, flaming Rush. The end is nigh as The Ticket gets its prog-rock freak on with Geddy Lee. Wait and see, we’ll be wearing flares and headbands next week.

Rhythm & Roots: five to see at this weekend’s country fest in Kilkenny. Plus Kurt Wagner and Cortney Tidwell on their old-school recalibration of classic country.

Plus reviews of new albums (including Fleet Foxes, And So I Watch Your From Afar, Metronomy, The High Llamas, Mazes, Bipolar Empire, I Draw Slow, Eliza Carthy and Tindersticks), movies (Thor, Insidious, Cedar Rapids, Farewell, Battleship Potemkin, Les Diabolique), games (Portal 2) and apps (WordLens), 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for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Oh my god, look at me, Grandpa been rapping since ’83.
