Kling Klang Machine

Here’s No Tail, headed off to bed after a long night of searching for worms.

Bob and I went to see Kraftwerk on Friday. Bob mentioned he got tickets several times and he could invite someone else if I didn’t want to go but also it would be really cool. I finally said I would go and he was so excited because it was going to be really cool.

He was right.

Here’s the wiki on Kraftwerk. It’s an electronic band that formed in 1970 in Dusseldorf. They were way ahead of their time.

One of the original founders is still in the band. He’s 75! It’s hard to describe. The music is very Berlin-disco-rhythm-be-boop. But also an immersive 3-D visual show sort of like being trapped in a video game. And also these 4 guys lined up in front of their techno stations pressing buttons and sliders. Also during one part of the show: robots.

It was a great show. I’m so glad I went.

We haven’t been out together like that in who knows how long — we had dinner and walked around downtown.

I spend so much time downtown but so rarely on a Friday evening. It was … interesting. A little wild west down there.
