Shonen Knife's Concert History

Shonen Knife (少年ナイフ) is an all-female Japanese pop punk band formed in Osaka, Japan in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups and early punk rock bands such as The Ramones. The trio rose from humble DIY beginnings to touring with Nirvana on their ‘Nevermind’ tour, trailblazing a path for women in music and inspiring legions of bands. Championed by Nirvana, Sonic Youth and hailed as a favourite by the crème-de-la-crème of Alternative Rock...
