Tit For Tat


After passing through three clipboard checkpoints in the maximum security Meatpacking District boite-cum-prison known as Hiro, we made it in to the Ratatat show. Our invite said that we were in for a special Ratatat DJ set, which is about as exciting as watching honey drip slowly from a spoon, but surprise surprise somewhere around 1am, Ratafarians Mike Stroud and Evan Mast took to the stage for a live human music show, dueling their guitars (new album Classics also features acoustic and slide guitars, sleigh bells and cellos!) and throwing out serious jams. We'd like to go on and on here, but friends and fans of the ’tat will have to hold onto their socks and wait for the forthcoming FADER dot comsclusive Ratatat interview, conducted by composer and brother in arms Nico Muhly - get your x-ray specs on high focus for their shredder August 22nd.
