Shonen Knife


Tour Information
Beloved bubblegum-punk band Shonen Knife return to light up venues across Te Ika-a-Māui, their joyful performances spreading contagious fun for four select dates!

Their solid, worldwide cult following includes 90s cutting-edge bands Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Redd Kross. Naoko, Atsuko and Risa, gigantors of Japanese punk pop, are back to fire up tunes from their musical cannon: 20 records and 40 years of making music!

Since their humble DIY beginnings in late 1981, Osaka, Japans Shonen Knife have been building a faithful following of rock enthusiasts and alternative rock elite, their relentless journey securing the bands place as one of the pioneer ambassadors of Japanese rock music and culture on the international stage. The rock and roll dreams of three girls blossomed into a reality and the trio continues now into its 42nd year of international touring and recording, with their 20th release Our Best Place released in early 2023!
