Shonen Knife ALIVE! In The U.S.A. Tour Kicks Off in Buffalo, Includes Stops in Ithaca and Brooklyn

Legendary Punk Rockers from Japan Celebrating the Release of ALIVE! In Osaka

It’s fitting that Shonen Knife launch their latest U.S. tour in Buffalo. It’s the home of their label, Good Charamel Records (started by Robby Takac of Goo Goo Dolls fame). This spring, they released Shonen Knife’s ALIVE! In Osaka, a DVD/CD set featuring 21 classic Shonen Knife songs recorded LIVE in Osaka Japan in 2017 (see set list below). Within nearly six weeks this fall, the all-female punk trio will traverse the U.S. Shows in New York State include Buffalo on August 28, Ithaca on August 30, and Brooklyn on August 31. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketfly for the majority of shows.

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!” – Shonen Knife frontwoman Naoko
