EDINBURGH REVIEWS:

EDINBURGH FEATURES:

AWARDS and Nominations:

  • Nomination -  TO&ST Award [Time Out & Soho Theatre Edinburgh Cabaret Awards]

Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of The Conchords say “Hallo” to your new favourite band. Die Roten Punkte (The Red Dots) are Berlin’s Prince and Princess of Indie Rock. Catch the hilarious multi-award winning duo before the release of their feature film in 2014.

Following sell-out shows in New York, Melbourne, Dublin and Edinburgh, the utterly dysfunctional siblings Otto and Astrid Rot travel to North America to unveil their eagerly anticipated third album, KUNST ROCK (ART ROCK) featuring the songs ‘Burger Store Dinosaur’ and ‘Bananenhaus (Banana House)’.

Described as “a lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between B52s, Kraftwerk and early Ramones“, Die Roten Punkte are truly unique. Their songs are ridiculously infectious and their live show is one of the most irreverent and hilarious gigs you are ever likely to see.
