Legendary Japanese all-girl rock group Shonen Knife continues its tour in support of its latest release, Overdrive, with a live show at (le) Poisson Rouge. The icons of indie achieved cult status with their brand of poppy-fun tunes influenced by 1960s pop and punk bands.
To mark Shonen Knife’s 30th anniversary and to pay tribute to groundbreaking punk group the Ramones, the band released its 16th studio album, Osaka Ramones in 2011. So it’s fitting that joining them on stage at (le) Poisson Rouge will be CJ Ramone, the bassist for the Ramones from 1989 through 1996.
