SHONEN KNIFE w/ The Weakness
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 Doors: 8pm Show: 10:00pm

Cincinnati, OH 45223
For thirty years, Shonen Knife has been rocking out the hearts of Americans and the Japanese alike. Many rockers were introduced to this three-piece all female band hailing from Osaka when they performed with Nirvana and Fugazi in the early late 80’s/ early 90’s.
Shonen Knife’s sound is an amalgam of punk, rock, pop, and grunge sounds that can be described as both dancey and unadulterated rock and roll. The three Japanese women provide a tremendously charming and youthful performance to devoted fans of every age.
Heavily influenced by The Ramones among others, Shonen Knife’s recent release is aptly titled Osaka Ramones, wherein the ladies pay tribute to rock and roll’s most legendary band. They will be performing at the Northside venue, Mayday, on Wednesday, November 16, 2011. The Weakness will be providing support. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at Mayday or on ticketfly. Doors at 8pm.
