Kraftwerk Descends on NYC

Gary Pini
It's Kraft(werk)-week in New York City!  An eight-night retrospective of the legendary German band's repertoire starts tomorrow at the Museum of Modern Art (11 West 53rd Street). Kraftwerk was formed in Dusseldorf by Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider in 1968, but the two split in 2008 and only Hutter will appear at MoMA. Tickets to all the shows sold out in minutes and are now going for up to $1,000 on eBay. Only 450 people will be attending each show which will feature a different album starting with their fourth, Autobahn (1974) on Tuesday, April 10, and ending on April 17. Below, a complete run-down of the albums and the schedule. Also, watch a cool fan-made video for "Computer World" that was directed by Andrew Doss.

April 11 Radio-Activity (1975)

April 12 Trans Europe Express (1977)
