LOCAL 506As much live-action cartoon as musical concert, Peelander-Z brings the same intensity to performance that Godzilla does to kicking Mothra’s furry insectoid ass. The Japanese trio wears leotards and bounds across the stage through a cacophonous garage-punk racket. It’s loud, rawkus and generally unintelligible, but between the human bowling, the crowd participation segments and their enthusiastic stage presence, you’d be hard-pressed to find a band that makes a stronger first impression. Tickets are $8 for the 10 p.m. show. Chris Parker
