Peelander-Z
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 Great White North has many fine exports -- Bombardier, Amabilis Fir, Jean Coutu… and their oh so precious and sparsely tapped Oil. But perhaps the fairest is the Vancouver-spawned DAG. On tap 24/7 in its many varietals since the early '00s, Gern Blanzden, Unikron, White n Shitty II and the neglatory Two Dollar Bill facemelt blues standards, krusticize shmuck punk glippets, and pack an arsenal of nugatory covers on call for blank discharge at will.

"Call it what you want - a novelty act, a parody or tongue-in-cheek performance art gone awry - DAG stirs up a loud, joyous ruckus every time it takes the stage… the members unleash a bracing blend of punk, glam and rock n roll with a fury, keeping a sturdy groove amid the turmoil." -Tim Finn, KC Star

"A delightful nightmare onstage. Although their getups were entertaining, they hardly needed them. Their performance and music were thrilling, full of vocal and guitar effects, and stimulated the crowd into a frenzy." - I Heart Local Music

Cast from London and several cities up and down the east coast into Kansas City/Lawrence area, the 4 members of indie garage rock outfit Westerners may seem more like an accident than a form of perseverance paid off. Beginning with an arbitrary move to a farmhouse in nowhere, Kansas, and an almost decade long friendship, the band's songs and interests were slowly formed over a year of pleasurable purgatory out in the wilderness. Lots of whiskey. Lots of smoke. Lots of good times. Lots of distractions. Emerging from the haze around August of 2013 and enlisting friend and local band director who was then recently discharged from the coast guard to fill out the sound, they swarmed onto the local scene with a constant slew of high energy performances. Recent release of the ep "Westerners" is drawing midwest attention and praise, displaying a group who are paving a street to somewhere, brick by brick.

Recent release, Westerners ep, is a 4 song, get-straight-to-the-point record that introduces the bands unique blend of garage rock and pop. Recorded and produced at Element Recordings (kc) by Joel Nanos, the ep captures the bands intense , live energy that is displayed at every event.
