"Japanese Action Comic Punk band" Peelander-Z returns to Pittsburgh, October 17.



Japanese punk band Peelander-Z will play in Pittsburgh on October 17. Wikipedia provides an overview of their live shows:
They perform on stage and appear in color-coordinated costumes, which they state are not costumes, but their skin. The costumes range from sentai style suits, to kimono, to rubber Playmobil style wigs. There is also a tiger costume and a giant squid/guitar costume to coincide with the song "Mad Tiger". Another aspect of their routine is their on-stage antics such as human bowling (diving head-first into bowling pins), pretending to hit each other with chairs in imitation of pro-wrestlers, and mid-performance piggyback rides. They often allow audience members on stage to join in on the fun, and often dive into the audience or hang from a balcony as part of their act.
They were originally supposed to play here on April 28, 2020, but the concert was postponed. They will play at Club Cafe on the South Side (map) and tickets for the 21+ show are available online.
