DUMBO’s most famous Japanese pop band, Gaijin à Go-Go, reunites for a free performance as part of Live at The Archway, a weekly cabaret under the Manhattan Bridge.

Formed by former model and fashion designer Petra Hanson in 1999, Gaijin à Go-Go delivers an infectious Japanese pop sound to the rhythms of 1960s style go-go music. The band self-released their debut EP, Hello Copycat, which quickly got them signed to Sony Music International. The group released two additional full-length albums on Sony Music International’s label, Happy-55-Lucky and Merry-55-Round, and their latest album, Go-Go Boot Camp, premiered as part of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Cherry Blossom Festival in 2006.

Gaijin à Go Go has played dozens of venues throughout New York City including the Knitting Factory, CBGB, Sin-e, SOBs, Central Park, Prospect Park, at the top of the World Trade Center, RUBULAD, and New Lost City.

Some of the members also travelled to Japan and appeared on the Fuzz Show. Check it out!

Gaijin à Go Go’s Archway performances reunites some of the group’s original members in a tribute to Pizzicato Five, together with a mix of original songs.
