Nelson Arts Festival presents OTTO & ASTRID – EUROSMASH!
by Die Roten Punkte (Germany)
Dysfunctional siblings Otto & Astrid are back with their latest show Eurosmash!, one of the most irreverent and funny gigs you are ever likely to see!
Otto & Astrid are Berlin’s (self-appointed) Prince and Princess of Art Rock and Europop. They are unparalleled performers of stellar proportions – gigantic and explosive. Tragically orphaned as children, they ran away from their small rural hometown to Berlin, and knew instantly they had found a place among the counterculture and the solace and saviour of rock ‘n’ roll music.
A lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between the B52s, Kraftwerk and the 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.
Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say ‘Hallo!’ to your new favourite band!
