In April, Kraftwerk are going to perform eight of their classic albums in association with with the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Unfortunately, most fans could not get their hands on tickets before it sold out. But worry not meine freunde as Classic Album Sundays is coming to the rescue!
Classic Album Sundays will present the much-requested “Autobahn” by Kraftwerk on 8 April at Bellwether in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This is Kraftwerk’s first concept album and it was completely groundbreaking when it was released in 1974. Even though the album mainly featured all electronic instrumentation and followed three very experimental albums, an edit of the title track found itself on the European and American charts. Toll.
Join us at 5 pm for a high speed and sonically enhanced journey through Kraftwerk’s musical contemporaries and discover why they become such a major influence on modern music. Please get their as early as you can.
