BEST BAND IN THE WORLD

Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say ‘Hallo!’ to your new favourite band.

Otto & Astrid from the band Die Roten Punkte (The Red Dots) are the Prince and Princess of Berlin’s underground art and indie rock scene. At the pinnacle of their careers with a string of awards notched into their studded belts, this counter-culture rock duo have truly arrived. They are rock incarnate.

Best Band in the World is a celebration gig by dysfunctional siblings Otto and Astrid Rot as they present a ’best of’ set featuring their favourite songs from their four albums (and maybe even a few unauthorised songs if Otto can sneak them in).

 

Orphaned as teenagers, Astrid and Otto found themselves homeless in Berlin before they dived into a rock baptism by fire (started by one of Astrid’s cigarettes). Born-again as Die Roten Punkte, the duo was catapulted into European stardom.

A lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between the B52s, Kraftwerk and the early Ramones, Die Roten Punkte are truly one of a kind. Astrid’s avant-garde style and legendary antics inspire both reverence and fear, while Otto’s dynamic stage presence brings to mind a whirling dervish on meth.

Die Roten Punkte is one of the most irreverent and funny gigs you are ever likely to see.
