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

Tom Tom Club: ahead of the band’s return to Dublin next week (July 22), Chris Frantz talks spending 30 years in the Club.

Hobo With A Shotgun: Rutger Hauer’s role as a vengeful homeless man with an automatic weapon sets Donald Clarke pondering about the history of the high-concept film.

De La Soul: a Q&A with the Daisy Age survivors.

Bobby Fischer Against the World: director Liz Garbus on her documentary on the strange and tragic life of one of the greatest chess players of all time.

Knockanstockan: Lauren Murphy previews three days of music at the festival with the best up-and-coming Irish bands, lakeside views and not a corporate sponsor in sight.

Plus reviews of new albums (including Rufus Wainwright, Zomby, Sebastian, Patrick Kelleher and his Dead Hands, The Innocence Mission, Danny O’Mahony, Suzanne Vega and Ronnie Vanucci), movies (Bobby Fischer Against the World, Cell 211, Hobo With A Shotgun, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2), games, apps, listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times tomorrow 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for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot.
