This Japanese quartet loves orange jumpsuits and thick goggles, but the Devo connection doesn’t end there. Like the spud-boys, they’re jokesters—but instead of ripping on consumer culture, they rip on New Wave music itself, turning it up to 11 with frantic comic levels. Like White Denim, they’re not quite as rabid as they used to be (as least on record) but live, they’ll likely tear it up for us Yanks. This local gig might be your last chance to catch them for a while; they’re planning to go on hiatus in the spring.
