Otto & Astrid (Die Roten Punkte) are Berlin's prince and princess of art rock and Europop. The dysfunctional siblings are a lipstick smeared, tantrum loving, sonic collision between the B52's, Kraftwerk and early Ramones.
Straight edged Otto (vocals, guitar, keytar, loops) and his petulantly imperious sister Astrid (drums, vocals, glockenspiel, cowbell, accordion) squabble their way through their ridiculously infectious songs in a performance that is equal parts rock concert and comedy sketch show. It is one of the most hilarious gigs you'll ever see.
Otto and Astrid take rock to a new level with this wild cabaret!

All you really need to know is this: they’re hilarious.
The perfect musical comedy act – it should not be missed!

Orgasmic rock-und-roll experience. This is a perfect show.

Pitch-perfect pop parody. If there’s a fan club, I’m joining.
The Scotsman, Edinburgh
Made me want to jump out of my chair and dance.
Three Weeks, UK
The whole presentation is wild and gets the balance between comedy and music exactly right.

White Stripes mated with Laurel and Hardy in the Black Forest.
Time Out, London
Die Roten Punkte was so creative, and so engaging, that even I found myself singing along, thrusting my hand in the air with the devil horns, as instructed. I was included.
Punk rock meets Eurovision.
