Shonen Knife: 30th Anniversary Tour

NEWLY ADDED SHOWS INCLUDE OCT 22 DATE AT CMJ AND
NOV 18 PERFORMANCE WITH CJ RAMONE IN BROOKLYN

Shonen Knife
Shonen Knife have been the most internationally recognized name in Japanese Rock music since their entrance onto the alternative rock scene in the early 90s seeing them become the indie darlings of hipsters and rock stars alike. 2011 celebrates thirty years since Naoko and the band began releasing albums of their joyous mixture of pop, punk, food and fantasy for the world to enjoy. Since their inception in Osaka in 1981 (featuring Naoko's sister Atsuko and their friend, bassist/vocalist Michie) to their current lineup featuring members Ritsuko (bass,vocals) and Emi (drums,vocals), Shonen Knife have maintained their rightful place in the ever changing indie rock scene.

In celebration of this milestone, Shonen Knife has announced plans for a North American fall tour kicking off October 20 in Toronto, during which they will be playing fan favorites as well as songs from the recently released, Osaka Ramones, a tribute to the Ramones. The NYC punk forefathers are often cited as one of Shonen Knife's biggest musical inspirations. A November 18 show at The Bellhouse in Brooklyn, NY will feature a special guest appearance from bassist CJ Ramone, who will join the ladies on stage. The band is also confirmed to perform during CMJ on October 22.
