Sure, they will be on the other side of the country, but still! LP3 is amazing! They would be so great.

Here is a crazy thought. it could have something to with the fact that they played in 07? but i doubt it could be as logical as that.

I guess thats why M.I.A. isn't playing as well

6 repeat acts from 07. and ratatat had a great set in 07. They are in the top 3 of that weekend for me. if gv tried to book every good band they would have to the polo grounds for months, its just unrealistic. its a different year, different acts. sorry if you missed them at coachella before. they do tour a lot and I am sure you can catch them when they come though your area.

they cant have every band who played in past coachella's play every year. It is really not that hard of a concept to grasp.

Egull

I understand I am just saying the fact that they played in 07 has nothing to do with them not playing. I then posted an example of how I know that, which was, M.I.A.

M.I.A played in 08. you need a better example.

Ratatat are playing in california late march-early april so watch them then. I think this might be their 3rd time playing in l.a since they came out with lp3, so if you haven't seen them since then...you didn't want to.

Are you serious, the fact she played 08 is even more of an example then a band playing two years ago. All I am saying is the reason they are not playing is not because they played to recently.

its part of the reason. and the fact that they are on the other side of the country.

gv books bands before they go on tour and announce their spring and summer tours. If gv wanted to book ratatat they could have.

Egull
03-23-2009, 03:53 PM
That is true GV probably could have booked Ratatat. You do realize all I was saying is plenty of bands play multiple years at Coachella and that Ratatat playing in 07 and 09 is more of a time stretch then a lot of the acts playing this year.

I'd love to see ratatat at coach

I guess I am the only one who thought their performance in 07 was dismal, slow, and unexciting? Maybe because they played right after PVD, but I felt like their tent was PACKED and yet I had a hard time finding ANYONE moving to their music. I wanted to, and kept waiting for them to just blow up and get things started, but I felt like there was an over-all lack of energy.
I've had a hard time enjoying any track off of Classics since then. LP3 came out swinging with some actually diverse and different tracks, so that was nice.

Because Ratatat isn't really that great. Get over it.

It's because they're allergic to air. Similar to your brain.

what you are saying is I could make a thousand threads about "Why isn't <insert band that everyone obviously would like to see at Coachella> playing Coachella" and not be a retarded crack-baby like yourself?

In 2007 while watching these guys, the ass ripped out of my shorts. Now, I'm not saying that I know for sure they rocked so hard that somehow it blew the ass out of my shorts, but I highly doubt anyone can prove with any certainty that their rocking DIDN'T do it, either.

ratatat should stop being a band and just do rap production

I haven't seen a thousand threads about Ratatat. And not everyone obviously wants to see Ratatat at Coachella, but this is a message board and people can post what they want to see, and discuss it. This category is rumors/gossip/wish list.

Just try to be in front of the guitarist, the bassist doesn't move at all, the guitarist at least gets into it a little, well he leans back a lot anyway.

I read on their MySpace blog that they're not playing this year because you masterbate too much.

totally agree! I don't understand why more hip hop artists don't take advantage of their skills! The few remixes I have heard of kanye and dizzee rascal and BIGGY were amazing and it could actually rekindle my interest in hip hop again! Also the missy elliot remix of I'm really hot was...really hot
