Deep Blue Sea: Donald Clarke talks to great British director Terence Davies as his first feature in a decade opens today

Skrillex: meet the dubstep avenger ahead of two sold-out Irish shows.

Adam Ant: Mr Ant, aka Stuart Goddard, talks highwaymen, Smash Hits and psychiatric breakdown

Welcome to the Rileys: Jake Scott is a celluloid blue blood, but the successful music video director had no intention of following dad Ridley and uncle Tony into the movie business.

Access all areas: Louise Bruton on why venues make things difficult, if not impossible, for music fans with disabilities to attend shows.

The Ticket Album Club: Bjork’s “Biophilia” cut and diced by Matt Cooper (The Last Word Today FM), Darryl Jones (Head of the School of English, Trinity College Dublin) and Jim Carroll (me).

Plus CD reviews (including Kate Bush, The Fall, The Unthanks, Olly Murs, Peaking Lights, Rizzle Kicks, The Lijadu Sisters, Emmy the Great & Tim Wheeler, The Dying Seconds and Joey Defrancesco), films (Moneyball, Dream House, My Week With Marilyn, Take Shelter, Deep Blue Sea and Welcome to the Rileys), games (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim), apps, listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times today in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

DJ-ing plug: Glider turns two tonight and I’ll be DJ-ing at the birthday bash alongside fellow new Glider residents Alison Curtis (Phantom FM) and Jonny Tiernan (Alternative Ulster) and Glider regulars Bernie Divilly, Cillian McDonnell and Tanya Sweeney. Glider happens on the last Friday of every month at the Workman’s Club, Dublin 2 from 10pm and admission is free.

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for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Bruuuuuuuuuce!
