    MUSIC

  105. Peelander-Z, The Subjunctives
    Childhood nostalgia plays a big role in the manic blitzkrieg that is a Peelander-Z show.

The band performs as a color-coordinated Sentai-style superhero team‚ÄĒPower Rangers is the most common example of this trope in the United States. But Peelander-Z‚Äôs live show is no joke. In addition to choreographed theatrics, they play with reckless abandon, sometimes hurting themselves while jumping from amplifiers or second-story balconies. JOSEPH SCHAEFER
