I was a little concerned about Ratatat because their recorded
music was so mellow I couldn't really imagine how their show
would be live. Luckily, all they really had to do was turn up
the bass, double the tempo and just be generally badass head
banging New Yorkers. Their stuff really impressed me live.
I was disappointed, however, by the lack of conversation betwixt
their songs. The only time anyone said anything was after the 
first song, the long haired dude said "Hi Shanghai" with WAY to
much reverb on his mic. He sounded really strung out as his
message echoed through the Dream Factory. This pleased the

They also prepared visual stimulants for each of their songs which
were projected on the wall behind them. The long haired one took
great delight in "Air Humping" any face that might appear on the 

Decent Show.
