Event description
Gaijin à Go-Go brings an infectious Japanese pop sound to the rhythms of 1960s style go­go music.

About this Event

Be sure to go-go to the 5@5 Stone Flower Shorts Program and grok the backstory to the creation of Gaijin à Go-Go in Petra Hanson's short film Xmas Cake: This American Shelf Life, screening at the Sequoia in conjunction with this live show.

The Brooklyn band quickly signed to Sony Music International and released two albums, Happy­-GoGo-­Lucky and Merry­-GoGo-Round, in the mid-aughts. Don't let their off-beat charm fool you; Gaijin à Go-Go have earned serious accolades at home and in Japan— They've collaborated with world-reknowned artists, producer Joe Blaney (The Clash/Prince/ The Ramones), guitarist Carlos Alomar (David Bowie) and Ursula1000, Konishi (Pizzicato Five), King Britt, and Skeewiff. They've toured with Puffy Ami Yumi, opened for Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra (SOBs), and, ? and the Mysterians (CBGBs main stage). They bring arty with a capital P to every stage.
