Berlin’s art rock royalty, Otto & Astrid, spent years arguing about which songs should appear on their much-anticipated fifth album.  Unable to come to a consensus, the dysfunctional brother/sister duo decided to tour separately with their own musicians. Unfortunately, nobody else wanted to play with them so they are stuck being each other’s backing band in a… Joint Solo Project.

This multi-award-winning teutonic twosome has played everywhere from Soho Theatre London, Joe’s Pub – New York, The Roxy – Los Angeles and opened for Amanda Palmer in Europe, USA and Australia.

A lipstick-smeared sonic collision between The B-52s, Pixies, Kraftwerk and early Ramones, this is one of the most irreverently side-splitting gigs you are ever likely to see. With ridiculously infectious songs and sublime physical comedy, Otto & Astrid are truly one of a kind.
