Peelander-Z
Peelander-Z
PEELANDER-Z, the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band, was originally formed by Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Red and Peelander-Blue (claim they are from Z area in the Planet Peelander!!) in NYC, but now based in Austin, TX.

Peelander-Z has had some lineup changes since thier start in 1998 and welcomed Peelander-Purple as new bassist in October 2016, and became newly reborn and powerful Peelander-Z more than ever!!

These four dress up in color-coordinated costumes about as if they came out of Japanese Animation (claim those are not costumes, but the skin!!!) put on a fun entertainment. Yes, their performance is not just playing music. Have you heard of human bowling, wrestling and kung-fu action, or funny dance at the punk rock show? Peelander-Z knows how to entertain the audience by dragging them into the show. One experience would capture you!! Peelander-Z is the best of the universe!
Me Like Bees
Me Like Bees
Me Like Bees is an indie/alternative rock band from Kansas City Missouri and is made up of Pete Burton (lead guitar), Asher Poindexter (bass), Luke Sheafer (vocals/guitar), and Tim Cote (Drums). Formed in May of 2009, the group has developed their sound with influences from bands such as Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire and The White Stripes.

The "Me Like Bees" sound, like many of their influences, is based upon the idea of moving music forward with interesting and simple melodies. Although simple, the band maintains the listeners' attention using irregular dynamics and asymmetric song structure. The group takes a quality control approach to songwriting, with each member bringing their own creative ideals to every aspect of the process.

The lyrics of Me Like Bees music are both thought provoking and entertaining, with a wide range of themes. Many of their songs discuss matters of inner turmoil, and relate to issues like guilt and doubt. Sheafer is known for his creative wording and unique use of syllables; often times giving a positive spin on what would otherwise be depressing subject matter. His singing style has been said to be a cross between Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse and Jack White of the White Stripes.
