PEELANDER-Z, the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band based in NYC, was originally formed in 1998 by Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Red, and Peelander-Blue, after meeting in New York City (although they’ll tell you they’re all from the Z area on the planet Peelander). Peelander-Green was welcomed in July 2008 after Blue left the band.
Peelander–Z has appeared at major music festivals including Bonnaroo and the Vans Warped Tour and has also been featured on TV programs such as VH1’s “Best Week Ever” and Comedy Central’s “Upright Citizens Brigade” among others. The band has also been covered by SPIN, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, NPR and The Onion among many others.
At its live shows, Peelander–Z guarantees intense audience participation and a chance to exercise. You’ll see the band in colorful costumes reminiscent of Japanese anime, though they describe their outfits as their skin. You’ll also see The Red Squid, human bowling and all around insanity. A Peelander–Z performance is a rare occasion for the entire family to rock out and have a great time.
The Houston-based psychedelic electro-blues rock intergalactic trio known as the Space Villains* (pronounced Space Villains Asterisk) made their debut in the Montrose music scene in 2012. The band features Lord Kalvin Camp as the lead guitarist and vocalist, The Infamous Ches Johnson on bass guitar, keyboard and vocals, with Sir Robert Frisk on drums.
The genre-bending trio’s current album Asterism, consists of eight hearty and diverse tracks with subjects ranging from computerized intercourse to social activism. The guitar-heavy tunes are complemented by a generous sprinkling of lyrical humor, surprise switch-ups and cosmic grooves that transmit pure energy through the speakers.
The band has made its mark at music events all over the heart of Houston. You can find the Space Villains* performing around Houston’s most popular venues to underground warehouse parties. Their flexibility has made them one of the most popular and supported groups in the Houston underground music scene.
