petra. on the stage.

Petra is the founder of Gaijin à Go Go, the band that brings infectious Japanese pop to the rhythms of 1960s style go­ go music. The Brooklyn band quickly signed to Sony Music International and released two albums, Happy­-GoGo-­Lucky and Merry­-Go Go-Round, in the mid-aughts. Don't let their eccentric 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.
