We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Shiragirl’s music vidoe for their song “Summers Comin” (watch it below), which was filmed live at Emo Nite LA.
Shira commented on the video:
We had so much fun at this show! This live video was shot on an epic night – the Warped Tour party at Emo Nite LA! It also happened to be the day we released the ‘Summers Comin’ single. Such a surreal night – I remember looking out in the audience and feeling honored to see punk rock legends from Kevin Lyman to Tim Armstrong (who produced this song with John King), watching us and supporting our journey. Perfect way to kick off this summer- gonna be one for the books!”
Last week Shiragirl brought back her Shiragirl Stage at the Pomona (6/21), San Diego (6/22) and Ventura (6/24) dates of the Vans Warped Tour, and will perform on the Full Sail Stage on these upcoming dates as well:
7/23 – Milwaukee, WI – Warped Tour Full Sail Stage,

About the band:
Shiragirl is the musical lovechild of The Ramones and Madonna. With deep roots on the East Coast, this “Punk Rock Madonna” has a new release coming in June. The 6-song EP Brooklyn Goes Hollywood was produced by Tim Armstrong (Rancid, The Transplants, Pink) and John King (Dust Brother, Beastie Boys, Beck). The lead single, “Get Em Hot,” is featured on the official Vans Warped Tour Compilation for the tour’s final cross country run this summer. 2018 will also bring the return of the infamous Shiragirl Stage, to selected dates.
As the legend goes, a young, determined Shira showed up to the Vans Warped Tour in her iconic pink RV, creating her own stage and performing atop her RV with her band, Shiragirl. After receiving a rousing crowd response, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman invited Shira to return the following summer to host the official Shiragirl Stage featuring female artists, accomplishing her mission to inspire and empower women by providing a platform for creative expression. The Shiragirl Stage went on to host over 200 female-fronted bands, many making their Warped debuts, including Paramore on their first ever tour, and the legendary Joan Jett.
Shira broke into the boys club, and made Punk Rock history. Shiragirl’s story was featured in the book Misfit Summer Camp: 20 Years On The Road With The Vans Warped Tour. She also received an MTV Warpie Award, and a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Warped Tour Time Capsule Exhibit.
Shiragirl went on to rocked stages across North America, including support slots for Rancid, NOFX, and Juliette Lewis. In 2017, Shiragirl shot abmusic video for her single “RESIST” at the Women’s March, and was invited back to play the 2018 Women’s March. Recently, Shira’s original one-woman show, Hot Dates, won the Producer’s Encore Award at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. Hot Dates details memorable moments in the life of a Bisexual Jewish American Ivy League Punk Rock Pothead Princess. Shiragirl travels far and wide, but her soul will always be Forever Warped.
