SHOW PREVIEW: Shonen Knife at Churchill’s Pub 05-05-17

Shonen Knife was formed by Naoko Yamano and Atsuko Yamano in Osaka, Japan in 1981 and since then has continued to write some of the catchiest songs ever put to wax. Most in the United States were first introduced to Shonen Knife from their shows opening for Nirvana in 1993 and the band’s multiple national television appearances in support of their album “Let’s Knife” around that same time. The band scored a major North American hit in 2000 with the song “Buttercup (I’m a Super Girl)” for Cartoon Network’s “Powerpuff Girls: Heroes & Villains” record and in my opinion holds the greatest collection of Ramones covers with 2011’s “Osaka Ramones” (Spotify stream below.)

Shonen Knife have earned their spot in rock and roll history not only as ambassadors of Japanese pop punk but also as musical peers to folks like Kurt Cobain, Joey Ramone and Thurston Moore just to name a few. Consider your attendance to any of their shows mandatory and see why everyone loves Shonen Knife.

Shonen Knife will perform at Miami’s infamous Churchill’s Pub Friday, May 5th alongside F, No Dice, Smut & Go! Racer. More info at:
