Shonen Knife play at the Black Cat on Monday, Sept. 3! You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
Following the release of their tenacious live DVD/CD ALIVE! In Osaka (Released on Robby Takac of The Goo Goo Dolls’ Good Charamel Records), Shonen Knife have prepared to deliver that same hometown energy to the Black Cat.
Shonen Knife frontwoman Naoko Yamano said, “Our first live album Live in Osaka was released in 2006, and was recorded at the same venue as this new one. After the first live album, we toured, released music constantly, grew as a band and improved. This year we would like to bring the fever from ALIVE! in Osaka on our US tour. Not only will we play songs from the record, but we are also preparing special rarely played songs from earlier albums to the present. Let’s have a fun time together!”
Naoko and her bandmates promise to perform selections from the new live album, including “Twist Barbie,” “Bear Up Bison,” and “Sushi Bar Song,” as well as a cover of Nick Lowe’s classic “Cruel to be Kind.” Watch Shonen Knife perform “Riding On The Rocket” From ALIVE! In Osaka on Vimeo:
