Electric Picnic headliners to play Waterford gig

Electric Picnic headliners to play Waterford gig

The amazing Le Galaxie are to finish up their tour of Ireland with an intimate gig in Central Arts in Waterford on November 17.

Central Arts is delighted to bring to Waterford this fantastic act – a true festival favourite and Electric Picnic headliner - that has been breaking down the barriers of the music scene with a retro mix of electronic experimentation, indie, dance and synth pop.

Le Galaxie don’t come from the stars but to experience them is utterly stellar. They established themselves as Ireland’s #1 live dance act with their brand of thundering electro, bursting to life with shimmering cyber-synths, pounding techno rhythms and guitar wizardry. The debut album, 2012's Laserdisc Nights Ii, was voted Number One Irish Album of the Year by Entertainment.ie.

This November, they finish their 2018 full live band tour with what promises to be an amazing night in Central Arts.

Mixed in Los Angeles by former DFA Records house engineer Eric Broucek, the second album, 2015's Le Club, combined their signature sound with completely stunning female guest vocals Elaine Mai, MayKay and Senita Appiakorang. Le Club was written and recorded in tandem with the bands relentless live schedule, which included sellout shows in Ireland's world famous Olympia Theatre, Berlinfest, Midem (France), SXSW, CMJ (New York), Benicassim (Spain), Lovebox (London), Eurosonic (Holland) among literally hundreds of other shows.

The band's third album Pleasure, produced by monstrously talented Swedish pop mind Blende, is Le Galaxie's dream of a truly great studio dance record made manifest. The titular first single Pleasure was teased in 2017, followed by ‘Day Of The Child’, the band's first track written with newly added band member MayKay.

This is a BYOB gig, so a great value night out, and is powered by Central’s state of the art Pioneer sound system so sure to sound amazing. Tickets are priced at €15 (plus booking fee) and are available from www.centralarts.ie. This is an over 18’s event.
