Most Outstanding Show, London Fringe 2015
Best in Festival, Winnipeg Fringe 2010

Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Concords, say “Hallo!” to your new favourite band. Otto and Astrid are Die Roten Punkte (‘The Red Dots’).

Orphaned as kids, the brother and sister dueo found shelter in a Berlin squat and never rockin’ well looked back.

An Otto & Astrid gig is a wild rock ‘n’ roll cabaret ride, full of hilarious, truly catchy and award-winning songs, constantly interrupted by the squabbling of the dysfunctional siblings. One of the most irreverent and funny gigs you are ever likely to see.
