Shonen Knife

Unstoppable pop-punk trio Shonen Knife have been holding gigs on or around July 12 for years – 7-1-2, you see, can be rendered as na-i-fu (knife) in Japanese. If they've jumped the gun by a few days this year, it's probably because the ladies need to prepare for their US tour later in the month, in support of recently released LP Pop Tune. Indie underachievers Papalion – who took over a decade just to release their debut album – support.
