Kraftwerk to Perform Albums in Full During New York Residency
Electronic music fans might want to start booking their plane tickets now: this spring, Krautrock pioneers Kraftwerk will stop by the Museum of Modern Art in New York for a residency that will find them playing eight of their albums in as many nights.

The residency will run from April 10 to 17, and it's being called "Kraftwerk - Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8." As the name indicates, the group will be performing all of the albums from their 2009 box set 12345678: The Catalogue.

The New York Times notes that, in addition to performing their albums, Kraftwerk will play "other original compositions intended to showcase the group's influence on contemporary culture." The music will be accompanied by "projected images, including 3-D ones."

Tickets are $25 and go on sale on February 22. See the schedule below.
