The members of Anamanaguchi describe themselves as either a boy band of hackers or Ninja Turtles, depending on who you ask. Their music, inspired by Super Nintendo games and many rounds of laser tag at the local arcade, combines ‘90s-kid nostalgia with danceable melodies.

If you’ve been hoarding your gold coins, now might be the time to trade them in for tickets to this show.
