Shonen Knife have got themselves a hefty little chapter in the annals of rock history due to their having introduced the US to a Japanese brand of punk rock that combined buzzing guitar and a cuddly style. That notwithstanding, Shonen Knife can still hold their own with any band today. After 30 years’ worth of albums and world-wide touring, Shonen Knife has only gotten sharper with age. Their latest, Pop Tune, shows what Shonen Knife has done best for all these decades: write Ramones-esque tunes with a wink, a nudge, and a whole lot of cheery Japanese enthusiasm. Those same characteristics have earned Shonen Knife many loyal fans, all of whom will turn this concert into a total party! Don’t miss a night of raucous, good-natured fun! Opening are White Mystery (former Miss Alex White) and Cleveland garage-punk trio Night Sweats.
