Shonen Knife, a popular punk band from Japan are headed our way for their U.S. tour! With nearly 40 years of musical experience ( Lollapoolaza, MTV’s 120 minutes, Cartoon Network, Beavis and Butthead, etc) will be kicking off their ALIVE! tour on August 28th in Buffalo, NY and ending on October 6th in San Diego, CA.

Noted to be enjoyed by artists such as Nirvana and Sonic Youth, Shonen Knife has toured over from Osaka, Japan before but wants each show to be more personal this time around by offering limited edition artwork only offered at each individual city.

The band will be expected to play popular hits as well as those rarely ever played from their earlier tunes. You can also check out other popular covers from the band for bands like The Carpenters and The Ramones on Apple Music.
