Apparently, Hitler is not the only one upset over their inability to see Kraftwerk’s retrospective concerts at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC next week. Headed by the GalariesNFS, a group in Buffalo is organizing a “mirror event,” or string of shows from April 6-17 to honor the German electronic music pioneers and to give those that won’t get a chance to see the group live in NYC to take part in the retrospective (Hitler, reportedly, will not be able to attend due to being dead since 1945).
Details are scant, but it looks like things will kick off on Friday at Hallwall’s with a viewing of the documentary Kraftwerk and the Electronic Revolution, followed by a re-interperation of Kraftwerk I by Jim Abramson, Scott Valkwitch, Pat Cain, & Gabe Gutierrez.
If more details emerge before airtime, I will be happy to impart them to you on the air. Regardless, we will do a block of Kraftwerk in honor of the event. *NOTE: The full schedule is now up on the FB Page.
Also! We have two tickets to give away to the Disappears, Lotus Plaza, and Location Ensemble show going down in Albany on Wednesday, April 18. These tickets are courtesy of WCDB Albany 90.9 FM. Make sure to tune in to find out how you can win the tickets.
