Peelander-Z knows how to put on a show. Appearing on stage in color-coordinated costumes, the New York-based, Japanese performance ensemble is a punk-tinged Teletubby fun riot. The manic joy captured on the group’s 2015 release, “Live at Red 7,” makes “Kiss Alive” sound like it has no idea how to rock ’n’ roll all night or party every day. From the frantic frenzy of “Get Glasses” to the spastic sing-a-long “So Many Mike,” these costumed, comic-book crusaders kick out the jams with infectious delight. Peelander-Z brings its fun-filled bounty of duty-for-now futures to Strange Matter on Thursday, May 5. Joining it will be the new-waved party anthems of Richmond’s Maximum Zero and synth punkers Suneater. Doors open for the barrage of smile-inducing goodness at 8 p.m. $10-$12. strangematterrva.com.
