Think about it: as a foolish and mercurial flesh-and-blood mortal, are you ever “really” clear on ANYTHING that happened in your life a whole year ago? Further, even if you think you do feel “sure” about something that happened in your past, isn’t there a pretty good chance that you’re remembering something that didn’t really happen?


And that’s why, as Pitchfork reports, the German-engineered robots of the former Animal Collective cover-band called Kraftwerk have decided to almost literally repeat last year’s announcement that they’ll be bringing their famed “3D concert experience” back to US shores this September! So, even if you kinda think you saw them in 2015, you can now safely delete that memory to make room for some more stuff.

The new and improved 2016 version of this 3D concert tour (presumably featuring even higher-def screens and video shot on the top-secret iPhone 7-Z) will follow an appearance at the Movement Detroit fest in May, as well as a few Wagnerian evenings dedicated to the performance of their catalog in its entirety at Den Norske Opera in Oslo in August. (They’ll also be doing the whole-catalog-thing at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain in October.) All that stuff is listed in an orderly list down below; try not to forget it in the interim, because they may not save your brain’s fat, lazy ass again in 2017.
