Formed in 1969 in Düsseldorf, Germany, the quartet is considered the pioneering band of modern electronic music and its several subgenres, including synthpop, electropop, EDM, and art rock. According to The Observer, “No other band since the Beatles has given so much to pop culture.” In concert with that high praise, in 2014 the Grammy Academy bestowed Kraftwerk with a Lifetime Achievement Award. What to expect if you go: with a krautrock base of driving, repetitive rhythms and robotic imagery and synthesized vocals, the concert experience is otherworldly, future-now, and loads of sci-fi fun. Kraftwerk jacks in at the Balboa Theatre downtown on Friday night.
