I don’t mean to get extra giddy, but the fact that Kraftwerk are playing at The Midland on Friday is something to be excited about. A legendary band doesn’t stop in Kansas City all too often. If synth and computer music aren’t your digs, however, there’s plenty more to get excited about in and around KC this week! Also bring a jacket – it’s getting chilly finally.
