OMG, Shonen Knife is in town!

Subject: Music
Way before my current obsession with Japanese cartoons, I had a thing for a couple of Japanese bands.

One was Pizzicato Five. Fun loops and tunes with a lounge-y kind of feel that fit right in with the "bachelor-pad" resurgence a few years back.

The other was Shonen Knife. An all-girl punk trio with a real Ramones-meets-pop kind of sound that was just awesome. And they'd been around forever. And tonight they're playing at a little quirky alternative club in town! Yikes!

My little lakeside getaway is a fair bit of a drive outside of town, though. And now that I'm getting older, I find that I can't really do the late-night-partying-then-get-up-at-6AM-for-work thang that I used to be able to do. And it's a tiny little venue that's usually jam-packed with people...

Excuses, excuses. I really should go. I don't think I'm going to though. *sigh*
