Help me find good electronic-type concert/live performance DVDs that don't have interruptions or interviews... It's for my kid.

The long story is:
We discovered that our young son doesn't particularly care for Baby Einstein. No worries - neither did mommy or daddy. By coincidence, we found that he did react particularly well to ... Kraftwerk's "Minimum Maximum" DVD. It captured his attention, he clapped along with the music, and he now instantly calms down any time he hears "The Man Machine". It's a godsend in traffic since we have the DVD player in the back of the van. Of course, it doesn't hurt that mommy and daddy love Kraftwerk.
So we've gone through what we have in terms of like-ish DVDs to save us in particularly hellish Baton Rouge traffic. Underworld's "Everything, Everything" does rather well but U2's "Rattle & Hum" does not. New Order's "A Collection" does well at points, but we've gotten mixed results with the Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze Director's Series DVDs.
So, for now, I guess I'm looking for concert or live-performance DVDs from electronic/dance acts that are just ... performance. No smattering of interviews or strange interruptions in the music (shame, the Soulwax concert film is out). Any ideas?
(BTW concerned parents - please don't worry about him not being well-rounded, we got that covered. He's exposed to all sorts of music, contemporary and classical. This is just a narrowly tailored request).
