Warning: Opolis announces Peelander-Z’s return

BOYS PRETTY, GIRLS PRETTY, YOU ARE FUNNY!!!

Oh, my.

For those of you who recall their performance at this year’s Norman Music Festival, Japanese anime/cartoon/metal-ish band Peelander-Z provided a batshit-insane hour’s worth of crowd-interactive entertainment that included human bowling, a giant squid and choreographed dancing. It was hilarious and somewhat terrifying.

Opolis announced Peelander’s mighty return to Norman yesterday on its Facebook page. I tremble at the thought of those three little men performing in a tiny, enclosed space so close to my home.  The show’s set for Sept. 10th. You can watch the band’s “interview” at NMF3 below. Also be sure to check out the end of the songs “Tacos, Tacos, Tacos” and “So Many Mike.”



In the words of Samuel L. Jackson: “Hold on to your butts.”
