Kraftwerk, So Close and Yet So Far

I spent a frustrating amount of time yesterday waiting in an online queue to buy tickets to see Kraftwerk perform at the Museum of Modern Art.  Apparently the demand was so great that the ticketing service was overwhelmed, and now the company’s CEO has apologized for the mess.

Even though Kraftwerk is performing eight nights in a row—each devoted to a different album—the event was bound to be elitist.  MoMA doesn’t hold that many people and some tickets are surely being put aside for benefactors.  

Last time the band performed in NYC was at the Hammerstein Ballroom, which can accommodate thousands of people.  I was there!

Kraftwerk is probably my favorite band of all time.  I never, ever, ever get tired of listening to their music.
