Kraftwerk's "Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8," in which the influential electronic group revisits each of its albums one by one over eight nights, began last night with the performance of Autobahn at New York's Museum of Modern Art.

The highly-anticipated concerts were sold out within minutes of the digital box office opening, leaving most people ticketless and cursing at a "captcha." But we've got the story for all of those who couldn't be there.
