Sunday, Nov. 11


8 p.m., Cider House (940 Blackstock Ave.). $5-$11.

Describing Peelander-Z as a Japanese psych/garage/punk band with members who dress up like Power Rangers seems like it should put a fine point on exactly what you can expect if you go see them. But it's ultimately a noisy multimedia spectacle celebrating noisy guitars and colorful costumes.

Monday, Nov. 12
