Shonen Knife (meaning “Boy Knife” in Japanese) is an all-female Japanese pop-punk band formed in Osaka, in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, The Beach Boys, and early punk rock bands, such as the Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs with simplistic lyrics sung both in Japanese and English. Currently the band is on tour in support of their twentieth release, Overdrive.
On Friday, Oct. 3, Shonen Knife will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Red 7. Austin’s Sweet Talk and Wildfires open the show. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
