OTR Presents 2013 plug: we’re delighted to announce that The Strypes are now on the bill for tomorrow night’s show at the Twisted Pepper, Dublin. The Cavan bucaneers join previously announced acts Forrests, Katharine Philippa, Wife and Rosie Carney on the bill. Full information on the show here.

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for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot.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