Cabaret performed on the following days in August 2013...
Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say 'hallo' to your new favourite band. Catch Berlin's prince and princess of indie rock before they release their feature film in 2014. A lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between B52's, Kraftwerk and early Ramones. Their songs are ridiculously infectious and their live show is one of the most irreverent and hilarious gigs you're ever likely to see. 'Wild cabaret rock concert' ***** (Herald Sun). 'Pitch Perfect pop parody' **** (Scotsman). 'Hilarious, outrageous!' **** (List). 'Excruciatingly funny' **** (Age).

Full press release
Having spent 2012 supporting Amanda Palmer at The Roxy in LA, and touring their smash hit show Kunst Rock in New York, Australia, Canada and Belgium, the Prince and Princess of the Berlin underground Indie rock and Europop scene, Otto & Astrid Rot are squeezing in their first visit to Edinburgh since their hugely successful 2009 debut just before heading off to tour Australia and then on to North America to make their first commissioned feature film.
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' looked back.
Kunst Rock is Die Roten Punkte's third full-length show and album and comes after nearly five years of genuine acclaim, touring worldwide. "DRP" have sold out venues in Edinburgh, Sydney, Montreal and Dublin.
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.
A lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between the B52s, Kraftwerk and early Ramones, Die Roten Punkte are truly one of a kind.
