    Osaka, Japan's infamous girl group Shonen Knife are about to reach another milestone in their 30-plus year career of bringing the joys of punk rock, fantasy and food to the hearts and ears of the fortunate!

    They will play their 1000th worldwide show since their 1982 inception not in their native Japan but in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota market at The Turf Club on September 16. Prince, a famous native, should totally come out and hang, right?

    Some bands don't even get to 500 shows, much less 1,000. Amaze! Congrats, Shonen Knife.

    This milestone achievement takes place during Shonen Knife's upcoming, 33-show North American tour in support of Overdrive, which was released this year.

    Shonen Knife will be taking requests for this special show from fans via their Twitter and Facebook pages, and the 1000th performance will also include an appearance by original Shonen Knife member Atsuko, sister of lead singer Naoko!

    We love that the band started in the '80s but is so modern and embracing of social media or "sosh meed."

    Congrats, girls, on a thousand awesome gigs!
