By Die Roten Punkte (GERMANY)
Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say ‘Hallo!’ to your new favourite band!
Dysfunctional siblings Otto & Astrid from the band Die Roten Punkte will take the Wairarapa by storm with their latest show, Eurosmash!
Otto & Astrid are Berlin’s (self-appointed) Prince and Princess of Art Rock and Europop. They are super musicians and unparalleled performers of stellar proportions - gigantic and explosive. Tragically orphaned as children, the brother and sister duo ran away from their small rural hometown and ordinary childhood, to Berlin, and knew instantly they had found a place among the counterculture, a home in a squat - and the solace and saviour of the 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.
