Concert Review: Kraftwerk, The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan, June 28

6_28_14_b_kraftwerk_kabik-30.jpgThe German quartet of electronic music pioneers took fans on a low-fi 3-D journey through retro technology. The show was a history lesson of sorts, complete with a few nods to Las Vegas. Imagery included throwback computers during “Computer Love” and “The Man-Machine,” vintage transportation footage in “Tour de France” and low-tech graphics (think the Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing” video) on “Autobahn.” Kraftwerk was more about experiencing the lengthy songs than watching lazers and banging in-your-face 3-D tactics. ★★★✩✩
