LOCATION: So Soiree Fringe Garden , The Parlour Greville Street
A lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between The B-52s, The Pixies and early Ramones. Dysfunctional brother sister duo Otto & Astrid, Berlin’s Prince and Princess of art rock and Europop from the cult band Die Roten Punkte, are returning to Melbourne to thunder through a showcase of their hits. And misses.
The teutonic twosome have rocked out at Soho Theatre – London, Joe’s Pub – New York, opened for Amanda Palmer all over the world, made a web series which has had over half a million views and collaborated with Australia’s own Circus Oz on Rock Bang: a circus rock opera. Otto & Astrid will be one of the most irreverent and hilarious gigs you are ever likely to see. A lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between The B-52s, The Pixies, Kraftwerk and early Ramones with ridiculously infectious songs. Otto & Astrid are truly one of kind.
