Yesterday I received an email from Ticketmaster notifying me that the band RATT was coming to town. This made me laugh. Do people really want to go see 50 and 60 year old dudes with straggly hair and eyeliner singing "Round and Round"? I guess nostalgia has its place, but how hard do you want to cling to the past (hello Uncle Rico Syndrome)?
The picture of the band in the announcement was teeny tiny, which made me suspicious. I clicked on it to try and see how well the band had held up since the mid-80's when they were pretty popular in certain circles, and I still really couldn't get a good visual of the band. It looked like maybe the wrong photo had been uploaded onto the website.
I scrolled down a tiny bit further on the announcement, where these reviews of their recent performances were listed. HAR!!!!
Have you ever gone to see a band and been terribly disappointed? I can think of a couple craptastic concert experiences, but I don't have the heart to call the bands out at this point.
