Shonen Knife Tickets
Shonen Knife translates to "Boy Knife" in Japanese characters, but the group is an all-female Japanese punk band with a membership of two sisters and a friend. Formed in Osaka, 1981, they were influenced by girl groups of the '60s, The Beach Boys and The Ramones.
Their music is based on catchy melodies with minimalistic arrangements, and have been described as having an "underground garage sound." Shonen Knife has performed a tribute concert to The Ramones as The Osaka Ramones, and were released to the U.S. by K Records in Olympia, Wa. In '09, they signed with Good Charamel Records and have toured the U.S. and Canada, including an appearance in All Tomorrow's Parties.
