American rock band, LCD Soundsytem, will be taking to the stage tonight at Malahide Castle with Lykke Li and Shit Robot as support acts.
Tickets are still available for the gig - yes, we know it's a school night BUT it's a short week and the weather is good, so that justifies it in our minds.
Here's everything you need to know about the gig just in case you decide the mid-week hangover is worth it.
Spoiler: It's always worth it.
Music starts from 5pm with LCD Soundsystem due on stage at 9pm. Queuing will not be allowed so concert-goers arriving before 5pm will be turned away.
