Ratatat @ The Electric Factory 10/6/10

Published on October 9th, 2010

Last night, Ratatat played for a packed house at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia. As soon as the NYC electro duo took the stage, it was clear it was going to be a good show. Trippy sound effects built as guitarist Mike Stroud and bassist/producer Evan Mast emerged from the dark. As lights came up, Stroud’s signature swooning guitar lead signaled that it was time to get down.

The second the duo hit their first bridge, they fell into an instant groove that immediately had the whole crowd dancing. The set material that ensued was well chosen. There was just enough of their newest LP4, as well as plenty of classics, including a version of ‘Wilcat’ that people went nuts for. It was actually really entertaining to see the entire factory try to sing along to a song with no words. Needless to say, the crowd was a huge asset to the show. It’s not that Ratatat wasn’t good, they absolutely were, but the performance just wouldn’t have been the same without everyone dancing together to every rhythm they played.

Have a look at some pictures from the show, as well a listen to some of our favorite Ratatat tracks (posted below).
