From the other side of Asia — Kazakhstan — comes this bizarre noir that looks like SIN CITY’s foreign twin. In crisp neo-retro black and white with color accents (notably deep red), the tale unfolds of a man on a mission of vengeance against a powerful, cold-blooded killer. In a nebulous parallel time period and with a strange monk along for the ride, it drifts into the surreal and supernatural like a David Lynch film gone rogue. The film is previewing at Otakon thanks to Birch Tree Entertainment, with US release scheduled for late August.
Proud to welcome PEELANDER-Z to the Otakon Matsuri on Thursday, Aug 7!
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.
Otakon Matsuri (Thursday and Free!)
Don’t forget the Otakon Matsuri! Amazing bands and DJs, Sumo, food, and fun!
