Release Date: 2009-11-04

Often credited with opening the underground pop scene to bands from Japan, Shonen Knife has been recording stripped-down pop-punk for 27 years now. Heavily influenced by ’80s bands like the Buzzcocks and the Ramones, they’ve been known to play live gigs as “The Osaka Ramones” as a side project. Their most recent release, 2008’s Supergroup, takes cues from girl groups of the ’60s (as do their wardrobes), while maintaining a rough-edged, garage-y sound. Before they take center stage at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest, they’ll play to a bit more intimate crowd at Sam’s Burger Joint. Call for price, 8pm, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson, (210) 223-2830,
