• Kraftwerk’s Computer World

On Tuesday, German electronic-music pioneers Kraftwerk begin an eight-day residency at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, performing an album in its entirety each night, starting with 1974’s Autobahn and ending with 2003’s Tour de France. Tickets for individual shows were modestly priced at $25, but managed to sell out within seconds—and predictably, scalped tickets currently range from unreasonably expensive ($100-$200) to offensively expensive (over a grand). If spending your month’s rent, grocery, and beer money on a single show isn’t your style, you can still take in some of the magic if you’re in NYC: the performances will be shown in real time via an eight-screen surround-sound video dome at the Queens MoMA. Any way you slice it, though, it looks like I’ll be enjoying these shows only later, via YouTube. In honor of what I’m sure will be a series of amazing concerts, today’s 12 O’Clock Track is “Computer Love” from Krafwerk’s 1981 classic Computer World.
