Le Galaxie Live
The Westival Club @ Mill Times. Saturday 27th Oct, 11 pm
One of Ireland’s top live dance acts, Le Galaxie’s famously euphoric shows are the stuff of legend among electro-pop music lovers. And now, with former Fight Like Apes frontwoman, the formidable MayKay on board, there’s just no stopping these party juggernauts.
Le Galaxie’s reputation as an unmissable live act has seen them headline Sea Sessions, Body & Soul Music Festival and Castlepalooza, and they have blown the crowds away at Brighton’s The Great Escape Festival, Midem in France, Electric Picnic, SXSW, NY’s CMJ, Europavox and Longitude Festival.
Their third album, Pleasure, released earlier this year, has been hailed as finally harnessing the raw beauty of their high-energy shows – a real game- changer that bumps the already brilliant Galaxie sound up a level. MayKay’s vocals have brought a whole new dimension, and we can’t wait to see her in action in Westport.
These Meteor Choice Music Prize nominees have an Irish Live Band of the Year title on their laser-lit mantelpiece – see them at Westival Club and find out why.
