When American culture goes over to Europe and comes back to us in translated form, we usually get something like the Rolling Stones (blues with a snotty, rocking edge) or the Hives (blues with a manic, Nordic edge). When American culture boomerangs back to our shores from Japan, we often wind up scratching our heads, wondering what they thought we meant. That's the delightful case with Peelander-Z, whose enthusiastic, costumed punk/metal show makes absolutely no sense " in the best possible way. The band members' high-energy, gleeful antics include wearing primary-colored suits and rubber wigs, carrying each other around the stage on piggyback, pro-wrestling-inspired ersatz violence, diving into racks of bowling pins, singing about meat and handing off their instruments to the audience, all with great cheer. Tickets $10. " Alison Fensterstock <10 p.m. Tue., Oct. 30
