Shonen Knife, along with opening act Me Like Bees, will perform at 8:30 p.m. Friday at Stickyz Rock 'n' Roll Chicken Shack in Little Rock. Admission is $15.

The female trio formed in 1981 in Osaka, Japan, and has since reached cult status with their infectious pop beats and oddball lyrics. The band was quickly embraced by punk and alternative rockers, including Sonic Youth and The Ramones.

At one time, Shonen Knife toured as The Osaka Ramones, a tribute band. As Shonen Knife, they were invited to open for Nirvana when that band was touring to promote the album Nevermind. Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain would later list Shonen Knife's 1983 album Burning Farm as No. 25 on his list of Top 50 Favorite Albums.
