Peelander-Z is a Japanese Action Comic Punk Band based in New York City whose live shows guarantee intense audience participation and a chance to exercise with the group. "Do human bowling with us. Do limbo dancing with us. Do karaoke competition with us. Hit our cowbell with us," says Peelander Yellow. " Don't be shy, give us your smile! We can beat your stress! See you at our show!"
San Francisco's chiptune staple crashfaster has evolved from a gameboy-weilding solo act into a snarling, four-bodied electro-rock monster. Isolation, assimilation, accomplishment and emptiness fill the the band's songs, which genre-hop from electro to industrial, electronica to rock, all wrapped in a space punk aesthetic.
Formed by members of Link-80, Shinobu, Gnarboots came to be in 2009 with the sole intent of creating chaos and good times through their music. Gnarboots' musical stylings range from Garage Rock to 80's synth-pop, and their boisterous live shows include free-style rapping, improvised dance numbers and the occasional chicken fight.
