Shonen Knife at the Galaxy

Back in college, my friend Teresa turned me on to Shonen Knife, a pop-punk Japanese girl band. I didn’t know much about them, but their song “Cookie Day” got a lot of airplay on my radio show. My weekly mailing from the Coach House and Galaxy let me know that they were in town this week, playing Thursday, March 24 at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana. Until doing more research, I never knew they were one of Kurt Cobain’s favorite bands, or that they toured with lollapalooza ’94. If you’re looking for what will surely be a unique punk-pop evening, check them out. Tickets are available from the Galaxy, $12.50 or $15 day-of.
