Ratatat Open for Bjork, Soundtrack the Birth of a Child
Baby born doing this: \m/

Björk's infatuation with beatmakers has grown to encompass the lovably scruffy guys of Ratatat, as she has asked them to open for her at shows on December 12 in L.A. and December 15 in Vegas. Being sane, they of course accepted, and those are now the only tour dates on the duo's schedule.

Accepting Björk's invitation isn't, however, the only thing Ratatat have done recently. A few weeks ago, Public Radio International's "Weekend America" ran a story in its "Listening In" series about what women choose to listen to while giving birth. A listener-generated playlist consisted of songs by Neil Young, the Grateful Dead, the Ramones ("I Wanna Be Sedated", har har), and Jimmy Buffet (life is full of disappointments, son). In the story itself, though, one woman revealed that Ratatat's "Wildcat" was her song of choice.

In a follow-up piece prompted by a listener's letter asking for more info about "that song with the cat's reeaaarrrrgh in it," "Weekend America" caught up with Ratatat for an interview on the subject, which you can listen to here. They explained how they recorded the roar, apparently obtained by going outside and capturing the sound from an actual wildcat, though one of the Ratatats pointed out, "I don't think it was giving birth at the time." They also revealed their own cheeky pick for Baby's First Song: "The Happy Birthday Song". Touché, gentlemen.

Also, we're sure that tons of people have noticed this already, but still:

As for the Bjork show, it's pricey but well worth it.

Trust me, Bjork > Acid.

10-05-2007, 07:54 PM
so, is the best ticket to get a GA ticket, or does one want to shoot for a seat? Which costs more usually?

DeltaSigChi4
10-05-2007, 07:56 PM
Same cost.

Unless you're speaking secondary market, where the floor pass maintains a premium.

garrett222
10-05-2007, 08:00 PM
I'm not thoroughly satisfied yet. If i was the aboslute first person to get a shot at the ticket and asked ticketmaster for the best available among all seats, would it give me the floor GA, or the front row of a different section?

The hard rock hotel has a cool venue where i saw cake and tegan/sara and gogol bordello..it was such a small vertical venue that any seat would have been good.

Is the pearl that sort of venue? Is any seat in the house an awesome seat, or do you really want to get a certain ticket to be excited?

DeltaSigChi4
10-05-2007, 08:06 PM
All seats are good, but the floor is small and has a very pleasing view of the artist on stage. I would be satisfied with floor and only floor. I've had both a good seat and floor for the same show, and chose floor.

SIDENOTE: I detest the Hard Rock. Most Las Vegans do. Shit casino, yuppie scene that makes you want to burn the place down, and did I mention it has shit gaming?

Side looks like a nice view, if that helps any.

My Fiancee doesn't like GA either...I am a little perplexed what exactly to purchase...BUT if Delta is right and it is as tiny as he says I think anywhere will be good...It will be the smallest venue I have ever seen Bjork at....It doesn't help that I just got a new CC with her tickets name on it....

Ugh! another crap part about Las Vegas...the effing high ticket prices..Because tourist or casino players (They always save tickets for any show for them) are always willing to pay more to "see a show". I saw Bjork here at Red Rocks for $50, so yeah it is pricey. But the Pearl is a much smaller and more intimate venue...I think it is worth it...

shakermaker113
10-08-2007, 04:53 PM
yeah, it is expensive. I'm wondering if this is worth it. Bjork was awesome at coachella, and I'd love to see get GA tickets and see her up close. and ratatat is a great bonus. but man it's going to cost me...

we could all pile in a single hotel room to cut costs. haha. but there's still $100+ per ticket, flights are gonna cost me another $200+...

on the subject of Bjork, I took a look at the mtv subterranean clips (http://www.mtv.com/overdrive/?id=1570659&vid=178295) that are linked to on her official website. there's very little substance to them, but I enjoy watching Bjork talk. I've seen very little interview footage with her, so it's a novel experience.

it looks like the makeup artist screwed up though. I don't think her cheeks are usually that flushed.

http://www.finehomeslv.com/palms_hotel_las_vegas/the-pearl-theater.jpg


The Pearl new concert theater at the Palms Hotel Las Vegas real estate opened this past Saturday. The Pearl theater has several tiers of intimate seating in a large crescent shaped room with a large foyer and towering ceilings.

The new venue at the Palms Casino Las Vegas has a seating capacity of 1,100 to 2,500

On either side of the stage there are nine skyboxes including no obstructed views at the new theater.

Pearl TheaterThe venue seems both big and small, and that’s the entire point.

No seat in this new Las Vegas venue is more than 120 feet from the stage.

The skyboxes at The Pearl, on both sides of the stage rising up from the general admission floor, feature their own bar service.

I don't know what this talk is of two levels of GA or 3rd GA... tickets were Price Level 1, Price Level 2 - RSVD, Price Level 2 - GA.

I think price level 1 are the boxes to the sides, not GA. price level 2 - RSVD are the seats at the back. price level 2 - GA is the floor. they didn't add RSVD or GA to price level 1 because there is only one type of seat at that price level.

unless you managed to get tickets in the pit... in that case the high ticket price would probably be cheaper than travelling to vegas. but the chances of getting those tickets are like winning the lottery.

COVER STORY
The Nokia Theatre is built, now will they come?
The spotlight turns on the venue next week. The goal: to make it L.A.'s new center stage.


Nokia Theater
By Geoff Boucher, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer


ON New Year's Eve 1999, television coverage hopscotched around the globe to document the night with images of huge gatherings in famous city squares, urban parks and at legendary landmarks. An avalanche of confetti fell on the New Yorkers jammed in Times Square, Parisians frolicked at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, and 3 million Germans gathered around the polished red granite of the Victory Column in Berlin. Similar scenes played out in Beijing and Boston, London and Sydney, Tokyo and Chicago.

And what was the proud civic image beamed to the world from Los Angeles? It was the iconic Hollywood sign, lonely up on its hill, cloaked in fake fog and flickering with strobe and laser light. There was not a soul in sight. The message from L.A. to the world: Who needs living, breathing people when you have a logo with 50-foot letters and special effects?


If Los Angeles ever seemed like an un-centered city, it was that feckless night. There may never be a repeat of it though, because, for better or worse, a $2.5-billion project to create a so-called Times Square West is poised for its first opening night: Next Thursday, the Nokia Theatre, a 7,100-seat venue billed as one of the most acoustically sophisticated spaces anywhere, will open with a double bill of the Eagles (the band that has the bestselling album in U.S. history) and the Dixie Chicks (who this year dominated the top Grammy categories, winning for best album, song and record).

The Nokia is a centerpiece of the deliriously ambitious project called L.A. Live, which is nothing less than an attempt to tilt the city's skyline to the south. The project covers 4 million square feet spreading out from Staples Center and the L.A. Convention Center; it will include a 54-story tower that will house condos as well as a 123-room Ritz-Carlton and a 878-room J.W. Marriott hotel, the new studios of ESPN, a Grammy museum, movie theaters, restaurants, apartments, nightclubs and a Lucky Strike bowling alley. It will take two more years before much of that is finished, but L.A. will get its first glimpse of its promise with the premiere night at the Nokia Theatre and its 40,000-square-foot plaza, which together should give the camera crews a better place to count down the last minutes of the year.

"As far as a public gathering place and a center for a world-class entrepreneurial city, we are going from nowhere to the very best, we are going from a disaster to being a role model," says Timothy J. Leiweke, president and chief executive of AEG Live, the company that owns and operates L.A. Live. "It's incredible what is happening in Los Angeles and what this project will mean."

The project will certainly mean many different things to many people, but not everyone's perspective will be as sunny as Leiweke's. There are already critics who say the development straddling Figueroa Street will be too oppressive, too glossy and too detached from the rest of downtown in spirit and aesthetics. Competitors wailed when the hotel component of L.A. Live got special consideration from the city in the form of loans and hotel-tax rebates. And activists have questioned whether a project catering to the affluent and wealthy is the best way to help a downtown with entrenched issues such as homelessness.

Champions of the project, meanwhile, see it as a chance to infuse energy and investment and goose the visiting convention business. There's also the philosophy that bringing more people from around the region to eat, shop and be entertained will lead to more money and identity for a place that, a decade and a half ago, was a concrete ghost town at night.

Here's one thing that appears certain: The Nokia Theatre brings with it the promise of a scintillating new mid-size music and entertainment venue to the second-largest city in the country.

THE Nokia Theatre sits like a little sister next to Staples Center and, from the street, their metallic swoops, glowing grids and digital ribbons make the family resemblance obvious. There are substantial differences inside, however. Staples (which seats up to 20,000 in some concert configurations) is far more concrete and utilitarian for obvious reasons -- who wants hockey games in an overly plush setting? -- and the acoustics are tricky because it was built with the conflicting imperatives of giving the Lakers a home-court advantage (which means echoing the cheers of fans back down) and also making sure that rock guitar solos don't ricochet out of control.

"We didn't mess around with the sound with the Nokia Theatre," Leiweke said. "We spent a fortune to make sure it has the best sound possible."

Last week, the chairs were bolted into the wide floor of the Nokia, and the place does look impressive. No seat is farther than 220 feet from the stage.

To maximize space for production and seating, much of the food storage and preparation will be done at Staples and wheeled over via an underground tunnel; other staffing needs are also housed on the other side of Chick Hearn Court. (That quick jaunt raises an intriguing possibility: One of these nights, will the Kings, Lakers or Clippers have the national anthem performed by a superstar booked at the Nokia?)

The venue is filled with glowing light; there are 5,000 square feet of LED screens in, on or around the theater and plaza, and the color of the entire building can switch from red to blue to green to white. The video screens everywhere, including atop towers in the plaza, are geared to make events larger than life in the eyes of a crowd that, with street closures, can bump up into the tens of thousands.

"This is," Leiweke said, "the Radio City Music Hall for the 21st century."

With a stage 180 feet wide and 80 feet deep, and a sophisticated lowering catwalk and rigging system, the venue is also positioning itself as a state-of-the art site for awards shows. As a result, the Shrine Auditorium and the Gibson Amphitheatre appear to be losing traction with producers who specialize in envelope shows.

Dick Clark Productions signed up first and, on Nov. 18, will make the American Music Awards on ABC the first major broadcast from the venue. That company is also behind the Golden Globes, and there is speculation they will be moving into the new digs as well, especially with the lure of the planned hotel ballrooms for after-parties.

That lure may help close the deal with the Emmys as well. AEG has been flirting with that show's producers for years, and although no final word has been given, the TV academy's board of governors gave preliminary approval in May to a 10-year deal with the Nokia venue.

That same month, AEG announced a strategic alliance to promote the brand of Nielsen's Billboard, hints that the Billboard Music Awards and the Billboard Latin Music Awards could soon be tenants as well.

The Latin Grammys seem a natural for the site, and Leiweke made it clear he was in hot pursuit of MTV's award shows and the ESPYs.

"I think you're going to see boxing in there too," Leiweke said. "We are the promoters booking the building, and we are going to take a lot of risks. There are also the corporate events and private functions. It's a dynamic building, and there are going to be exciting things there. We've opened a lot of venues in a lot of cities and when people ask me which is my favorite, I always say, 'The next one.' But this one is going to be very special for a very long time."

Ummm it is, thats what Live Nation has been trying to do. All the venues are being ''franchised'' just like House of Blues. The Fillmore Denver and SF are the originals though. I have been to both and both are great places to see a show.

Wiki entry, I know it says 1999, but it has the history as stated.


The Fillmore Auditorium is an auditorium located on Colfax Avenue and Clarkson Street in Denver, Colorado, United States. Founded in 1999, it is used for performances of live music. It is named after The Fillmore, a famous establishment in San Francisco.

The building opened in 1907 as a skating rink, serving several different functions over the decades following. In 1969, it was bought by Stuart Green, with the intent of "emulating Bill Graham’s Fillmore". Under the name Mammoth Gardens, the venue hosted such powerful names as The Who and The Grateful Dead, but it was closed in October 1970. By the 1990s, it was operating as the Mammoth Events Center, hosting a mix of public and private functions. Finally, under new ownership, it was renovated and reopened as The Fillmore Auditorium in 1999.

I'm incredibly jazzed about the opening of the Nokia ever since the Tool show made me go research it--this only adds to its ever-building awesomeness.

Only thing that sucks is that one of my best friends works for a hotel who owns a box in the Staples Center, and so my friend and his fellow managers get to request free VIP box tickets to any upcoming Staples Center events. Of course there hasn't been a decent fucking concert there all summer and never will be again it seems and we don't give a flying fuck about sports and this deal isn't transferring over to the Nokia at all, so it's useless.

Nokia and that entire thing are being built by the owners of the Staples Center, no? I know it wouldn't transfer, but it was an outside hope. Didn't know at the time that the VIP tickets were by benefit of the hotel owning a box at Staples, he just knew that he could get awesome seats to any event if he put in the request early enough.
