Japanese cult band Shonen Knife -- rocking from Osaka since 1981 -- are currently in the US supporting their new album, Overdrive, that finds them putting a bit of '70s glam sparkling on their signature punky pop. Their tour hit NYC over the weekend with a show at The Wick on Friday (9/12) that was well matched with Habibi and fellow Japanese band (living in NYC), The Suzan. Pictures from the night as well as video of Shonen Knife performing Economic Crisis" and "Antonio Baka Guy" are in this post.

From here, Shonen Knife's tour heads west, before returning to NYC for CMJ next month. Stay tuned for more details about CMJ shows. More pics, plus video from their show at The Wick, below...
