The all girl J-pop band Shonen Kinfe was a multi-colored polyester clad hit with the afternoon crowd on day one of this year’s Fun Fun Fun fest. Quick riffs, high pitched voices, and predictable drum beats made for an easy and fun listing experience. I’m still not sure what all the hand salutes were about?
