Kraftwerk - Live in Denver, Colorado - 04/23/08 - photos taken from cell phone.

It was a last minute decision for me but I decided to go and support the Kraftwerk show here in Denver last night - being a weeknight and having to get up early I wasn't sure it would be wise, but I figured it is one of those 1-time opportunities, plus tix were only $36 at the door. I thought it would be a fairly low key show. I was surprised by the venue choice - which holds 3,600 - but was sorely mistaken. The show was nearly sold out (but is was a half house with a larger curtain dividing the auditorium, and I estimate somewhere around 1,200 people in attendance. Wow!) The band played all the hits and the sound was amazing as were the visuals... the crowd was diverse - including emo kids, old timers, ravers, synth nerds, and goths. The goth kids decided to start dancing in the open area behind the curtain.

Very glad I went, well worth it to see these guys - the godfathers of synthpop!

Saw Kraftwerk here in Toronto a couple of years ago (went with rik from mara's torment)
and the sound was superb. I have no idea how they achieved such tight, solid (yet non-boomy)
bass in the small arena they played in.

I've seen them twice now (1998 and 2005) and they never disappoint.  The only thing they eliminated from their act on recent tours (which was featured in '98) is the fabulous "Pocket Calculator" where they bring the hand-held units out to the front of the stage.  Awesome!   8)
