Caption and photos by Andy ArgyrakisAfter essentially inventing the electronic music genre in 1970, Kraftwerk's influenced just about everyone who's ever played a synthesizer, while remaining at the forefront of the genre through today. Though the real life robots don't tour or record with anywhere near the frequency of its experimental beginnings, demand continues to be fanatical for Germany's kings of krautrock, as evidenced by yet another instantaneous sellout at Chicago's historic Riviera Theatre. Even without a new album to tout, the Ralf Hütter led foursome is still making innovative strides on the road, staging a full-fledged 3-D concert ripe with favorites like "The Robots," "Computer World" and everything in between, enhanced all the more by the latest in its long line of technological marvels.
