'Rarely Seen Above Ground' set for Christmas gig in Waterford

The performer known as 'Rarely Seen Above Ground' set to play Waterford's Central Arts

On Saturday, December 8, Central Arts in Waterford presents a performance by one of Ireland’s most unique and outstanding talents, the man known as R.S.A.G., short for Rarely Seen Above Ground, as he returns in a storm of sound and an eruption of percussion mixed with hypnotic tunes and visuals.

Since its conception in 2008 musical juggernaut, Rarely Seen Above Ground has taken his tour de force, one man show of sound, visuals and incendiary rhythm and samples to captured audiences around the world. Known to his friends as Jeremy Hickey, R.S.A.G has gained a reputation not only as one of Europe's most impressive drummers but as a celebrated producer and a talented showman.

R.S.A.G continues to gather momentum, since the early days when he picked up a Choice Music Prize nomination, he has pressed two celebrated LP's, secured billings on the most enviable festivals in both Europe and America and made multiple international TV appearances along the way.

As well as all that Hickey's undeniable talent behind a kit has led to some very impressive collaborations from Justice’s, Grammy Award-winning Xavier de Rosnay, Parisian electronic outfit Bot'Ox to Ireland’s own charismatic ringleader Jerry Fish.

This guy is a force of nature, and now is your chance to see him in the very cool and intimate setting of Central Arts! Support on the night is from the excellent Kilo 1977. This event is likely to sell out – book early to avoid disappointment! 

Doors open at 10pm, and tickets priced €15 are available from www.centralarts.ie. For further information about this and other events happening in Central Arts, check out their Facebook page.
