Los Angeles-based Particle will headline an unforgettable New Years Eve bash at Irving Plaza with a special appearance by Kaiju Big Battel plus
Buckethead, and Peelander Z. Particle’s unique “funktronic” sounds blend
elements of electronica, funk and rock and have been exciting live music
fans around the country for several years now. The instrumental quartet is
comprised of Eric Gould on bass, Charlie Hitchcock on guitar, Steve Molitz
on keyboards, and Darren Pujalet on drums.
The band’s adventurous spirit has inspired them to throw a one of a kind
Japanimation New Year’s Party. Japanese Comic Action Punks Peelander Z kick off the evening with their high energy music, kung fu kicks, and
otherworldly stage antics. The ubiquitous Buckethead is next on tap for the
New Year’s festivities bringing his lightening quick leads and unparalleled
presence. Not satisfied with one Japanese performance act, Particle has
also invited Kaiju Big Battel to join the madness for a special appearance
just after midnight. Kaiju Big Battel, described as monster mayhem, combine
elements of American pro wrestling, Japanese Monster Movie Mayhem, and pop culture. The group has recently appeared on Dennis Miller, Jimmy Kimmel, and CNN performing matches of epic proportions in front of TV audiences. The evening promises to feature special anime shorts and a champagne toast at midnight along with two sets from Particle.
