Anime USA Presents Peelander-Z at Anime USA 2008, Oct. 10-12

ARLINGTON, VA - AUGUST 26, 2008 - Anime USA is pleased to announce that entertainment group Peelander-Z has joined the convention's growing list of musical performers. During their stay, Peelander-Z will perform in concert, and will also be available throughout the weekend for autograph sessions, panels, and press interviews.

Peelander-Z, the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band, was originally formed in 1998 by Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Blue, and Peelander-Red (who claim they are from the Z Area on the Planet Peelander!). When Peelander-Blue was recalled home to become the new king of Planet Peelander, the team welcomed Peelander-Green. Peelander-Z was reborn, more powerful than ever!

This trio dresses up in color-coordinated costumes, almost straight out of Japanese Animation, to provide fun entertainment. Their performances consist of more than just playing music. Have you seen human bowling, wrestling and kung-fu action, or funny dances at punk rock shoes? Peelander-Z knows how to entertain the audience by dragging them into the show. One experience will capture you! Peelander-Z has appeared not only at major music festivals like Bonnaroo, CMJ and SXSW, but also on TV programs including Best Week Ever on VH1, Upright Citizens Brigade on Comedy Central, and MXC: Extreme Challenge on Spike TV. They have played with bands such as Buckethead, Electric Six and Particles.
