If we had to pick something to make German-based, Grammy Award-winning Kraftwerk’s hypnotic, electronic music more memorable, 3-D glasses probably wouldn’t be it (what’s there to “see” at an electronica concert, anyway?). But apparently, they’re the perfect addition to Kraftwerk’s multimedia “robot pop” performances that combine music and contemporary art in the same set. You’ll be able to see for yourself if you hit the show at 8 p.m. June 28 at the Chelsea in the Cosmopolitan ($40), where 3-D glasses will be handed out at the door … making it the better to “see” Kraftwerk’s perfectly synced digital sound and 3-D projections.
