**** “White Stripes mated with Laurel and Hardy in the Black Forest.” – Time Out, London
Fresh from supporting Amanda Palmer at The Roxy in LA, the Prince and Princess of the Berlin Underground Indie rock and Europop scene are coming to REVOLUTIONS for the very first time! If you’re a fan of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say “Hallo!” to your new favorite band.
Astrid and Otto are Die Roten Punkte (The Red Dots). Orphaned as kids when Astrid was 12 and Otto was 9, the brother and sister duo found shelter in a Berlin squat and never rockin’ well looked back.

A Die Roten Punkte gig is a wild, rock ‘n’ roll cabaret ride, full of hilarious, truly catchy, and award winning pop songs, constantly interrupted by the squabbling of the dysfunctional siblings. Described as “a lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between the B52s, Kraftwerk and 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 are one of the most irreverent and funny acts you are ever likely to see.
“The performances are exuberant and flawless…fist pumping fun of the highest order.” – Eye Weekly, Toronto
