Shonen Knife, Ghost of Rock

When: Tue., Oct. 25, 9 p.m. 2011

The three-female Osaka trio Shonen Knife has been recording and regularly churning out records of their punk-fueled, chiming power pop for three decades now. What's more, their biggest experience as a band perhaps came two decades ago, when they opened for one of their obsessive fans, Kurt Cobain and his Nirvana, on a full tour. But their music—charismatic, spirited and triumphantly jovial—is exactly the sort of stuff that will never outlive its seemingly nonexistent expiration date. This is exactly the sort of music that serves as a constant reminder that a perfect three-minute pop song is a hard thing to ignore or forget, even after all this time. The Ghost of Rock opens. —Grayson Currin
