Le Galaxie, the entertainment.ie 'Best Live Band In Ireland' as per The Erics in January, will host A Night For Marriage Equality in Dublin's Academy on the 9th of May.

The gig will kick off at 11pm and will run to the wee hours, thanks to the combined talents of Le Galaxie and support acts Ships, Daithi and Mother DJs. Tickets to the show are a steal at €16.50 with all proceeds going to the excellent cause that is www.marriagequality.ie.

As per the presser:

The lack of marriage equality in Ireland is a civil rights issue that affects not just the LGBT community themselves but also their family, friends, colleagues, neighbours – EVERYONE. The tide is undeniably turning and Ireland now faces the prospect of a referendum on the issue in 2015. It’s been a long road to get to this point, and it couldn’t have been done without the tireless work of the wonderful non-profit grassroots advocacy organisation that is Marriage Equality. Le Galaxie want to do everything they can to help combat the tide of misinformation and fear-mongering that will no doubt be whipped up as we approach the referendum - that’s why they’ve chosen to step up and raise vital funds for the cause!
