Die Roten Punkte a.k.a. Otto and Astrid Rot make a number of North American stops on their international Robot/Lion Tour, including a one week engagement at New York's Barrow Street Theatre.
The Pop-Punk/Electro-Clash and Comedy sensation Die Roten Punkte is the international award-winning hit of the Edinburgh, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto and Spoleto Festivals.
Described as a "tantrum-loving, sonic collision between Plastic Bertrand, Kraftwerk and early Ramones," Die Roten Punkte is truly unique. The duo's songs are ridiculously infectious and their live show is one of the most irreverent and hilarious gigs on the scene today.
Things have not always been easy for the Rots. After being orphaned at a young age (their parents were killed by a lion or a train, depending on which sibling's story you believe), the pair scraped by in squats in Kreutzberg and became homeless in Amsterdam. But after a baptism by fire (started by one of Astrid's cigarettes) in the underground rock scene of Berlin, they have clawed their way to European fame in true punk rock tradition.
