Never miss another 'Shonen Knife' show
Shonen Knife + BMX Bandits + Smallgang

All-girl Japanese 3-piece punk-pop band, with catchy tunes coming on like a female Buzzcocks or Ramones. They were championed by the late Kurt Cobain, supporting Nirvana in the States, and were personally chosen by Simpsons creator Matt Groening to play 2010's All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Minehead. After recently celebrating their 30th anniversary, 2014 sees the release of, staggeringly, their 20th album; 'Overdrive'.
Shonen Knife tour dates
Indie legends who split to form Teenage Fanclub. But they have been known to reform for special occasions, so if they have a gig booked, get along because it might be a long time before another comes along!
BMX Bandits tour dates
Sounding something like Johnny Cash fronting Sonic Youth or Smog's Bill Callahan holding his own in front of Dinosaur Jr. This power trio is fronted by half-Japanese siblings Simon and Toshi Kobayashi, joined by Matt Atkins on drums.
Equally passionate about rock's rich tapestry as they are 20th century literature, their songs nod to the influence of bands like Television, The Smiths, Pavement and Wilco whilst the lyrical themes of ambiguity and the strangeness of everyday life evoke the writing of Raymond Carver, Charles Burns or Richard Yates. New album 'San' released June 2 2014.
