Le Galaxie + Ships, White Collar Boy, Sleep Thieves + Acid Future

   

Button Factory : Temple Bar : Dublin 2
 

   
   
Show Information:

POD are delighted to announce a stellar electronic all-Irish line-up for this year’s Paddy’s Day party at THE BUTTON FACTORY.
 
Sunday March 17th will see The Button Factory overrun with home grown talent, as electronica masters LE GALAXIE play the headline slot, with supporting performances from SHIPS, WHITE COLLAR BOY, SLEEP THIEVES, and ACID FUTURE.
 
Particularly loved for their exhilarating live shows, LE GALAXIE garnered rave reviews for their festival appearances last year, closing the Electric Picnic's Little Big Tent with a festival-stealing performance.
Last year also saw the foursome on the shortlist for Irish Times best band of the year, with their critically and publically beloved 2011 album “Laserdiscs Night 2” a party staple by now.
 
We recommend you pick up your tickets in advance for this one- Le Galaxie’s two nights in The Workmans in December sold out months in advance.
 

 

There are types of music to suit all moods, and there's Le Galaxie, the band to suit any mood. From elation and euphoria at hyper heartspeed to the quiet yearning of being left alone on the dancefloor, this four-piece Dublin band have earned a five-star reputation for getting it right, time and again. An album, Laserdisc Nights 2, that sounded out with an iridescent salute of synths and guitar boosted by beating rhythms and rousing vocals, went straight to the core of Irish music on its release in 2011, voted #1 Irish Album of the year by Entertainment.ie
 
In 2012 alone Le Galaxie delivered to high expectations with stunning sets at the Berlin Music Festival, Electric Picnic, Forbidden Fruit and Heineken's Live Project along with a headline show at the renowned industry showcase HWCH. As well as releasing an acclaimed new EP, Fade 2 Forever, and selling out venues close to lightspeed, Le Galaxie were shortlisted as the Irish Times' best Irish band of 2012. Fans and critics alike flock to be a part of the high intensity experience of the band's shows that can be termed a type of new nostalgia: making music memories that never truly fade.
 
 
'Over the past two years, Le Galaxie have transformed themselves into a juggernaut of a party band, jack knifing into crowds who are only too happy to take the hit. Without question, one of the best sets of the weekend...' IRISH TIMES, ELECTRIC PICNIC 2012
'[Le Galaxie] showed once again why they are the best live dance act in Ireland right now... the 2am slot feel like a late-night celebration of a band who are only getting better...' NIALLER9'Even better are Le Galaxie, who have graduated from a 2011 lunchtime slot to the show that everybody wants to see late tonight. They are simply fantastic, faultless from start to a finish...' HEINEKEN MUSIC

'For sheer exuberance on stage no one came close to Le Galaxie over the whole weekend. Their set began at 2am and one hour later everyone inside the Little Big Tent was a mess of glee and exhaustion. Lethal...' ENTERTAINMENT.IE


'Le Galaxie have upped their game to match their profile...But it is the music, above all else, that make this performance one of the biggest hits of the weekend...[They] depart stage-left safe in the knowledge that they’ve just conquered Stradbally. Stay tuned as they continue get bigger and better...'STATE.IE


'The most danceable thing we’ve come across from an Irish band since Jape hit his heights...' AU MAGAZINE'Merging all the delirious wonderment of Daft Punk with Kraftwerk, Le Galaxie are that and so much more...' HARMLESS NOISE
'With theatrical vocal quips and their brand-new debut album Laserdisc Nights 2 clutched in glittering gloves of synthesizers and guitars, pegged on rhythms that stomp like stilettos on glass...' LE COOL
'The high-tide mark in Irish electronica thus far, in 2011...' ALTERNATIVE IRISH REVIEW
'...an album that glitters with eleven slabs of solid gold dancefloor fillers...' THE SUN
'[Laserdisc Nights 2 is] an 11-song journey through neon dreams, big beats and 1980s Miami beach parties…' HOTPRESS MAGAZINE
