Backstage With Horse Trade Theater Group

Paper Magazine's Tom Murrin interviews Erez Ziv, Founder and Managing Director of Horse Trade Theater Group.

"When you think of Broadway theater impresarios, classic names like Shubert or Nederlander come to mind. But in the off-off-Broadway world, you're more likely to hear about Erez Ziv, who manages both The Red Room, The Kraine and the basement theater space at Under St. Mark's." (read more)

Die Roten Punkte


Berlin’s 'Prince and Princess of Punk', Otto and Astrid Rot are back for another North American tour to celebrate the release of their acclaimed Super Musikant CD - a ten-track high-energy feast of rock, studded with rich veins of rock 'n' roll. They're bringing their unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll to NYC and they want to push their rock in you. What are you waiting for? Rock Bang!

DIE ROTEN PUNKTE (The Red Dots) are a Berlin two-piece brother/sister rock act that have won worldwide acclaim for their last three albums. Much has been said in the international media about Otto and Astrid Rot’s strange brother/sister relationship. Compromising photos have appeared in newspapers showing both public and private affection. Astrid has a reputation for being a ‘party girl’, most famously coming to blows with Courtney Love in a New York City club. Otto continues to fuel his reputation as the newest ‘Prince of Punk’. His stage presence and live energy has been described as “all five of The Hives trapped in a lipstick-smeared Pete Townsend”.

The 'Best Band In The World' are playing a special, limited engagement with Horse Trade Theater Group January 8-10, Thursday through Saturday at 8pm @ UNDER St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place between 1st and A). Tickets ($18) are available by calling Smarttix at 212-868-4444 or online at
