Japanese High-Concept Pop Duo, FEMM to perform in Los Angeles
The acronym stands for Far East Mention Mannequins; it is the official name of plastic dolls that were brought to life by a mysterious organization called FEMM’s Agency Syndicate. Only mannequins that pass certain criteria can become FEMM and the Agency is constantly on the lookout across the world for plastic diamonds in the rough.
Tune in Tokyo and GAMeBoi have teamed up together to bring FEMM to the West Hollywood nightlife, performing for the first time in the US on August 7, 2015.
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 29th, 2015)–GAMeBoi Los Angeles and J-Pop promoters Tune in Tokyo present Japanese pop duo FEMM live on Friday, August 7th!
