Shonen Knife

The Shonen Knife US tour has officially come to a close. Along that tour the peppy and colorful Japanese pop punk band played two NYC shows. The first one was at the Asia Society. Then two days later (9/28) they played Knitting Factory in Brooklyn with Hard Nips and Grooms. Pictures from that show are in this post.

And speaking of Japanese bands, a bunch more notable ones will be hitting NYC this weekend along with Anime Fest. The rest of the country should look out for Peelander-Z (also very colorful) who are on tour now.

More pictures from the Knitting Factory show, with their setlist in Japanese, below...

It's sort of precious how badly the Grooms guitarist rips off Malkmus' stage antics, right?

i find it hilarious when people are so directly agressive with BV and he responds in his usual relaxed demeanor

Fourth to last picture says sexy scooby doo girls play well crafted fun pop songs.

This is Steve. He's different onstage than me. I haven't broken a sweat since Wowee Zowee.

I do appreciate that youve added relevant and intelligent commentary here though. Thank you!
