On August 7th, Japanese pop performance band FEMM (short for “Far East Mention Mannequins”) made their Los Angeles debut at Club Rage in West Hollywood courtesy of GAMeBoi and Tune in Tokyo , providing fans with a unique take on high concept pop music.
Their official website states that the two latex-clad mannequins-turned pop stars, RiRi and LuLa, are here to stand up for mannequins’ rights, and recruit their fans to join the FEMM Agency Syndicate, a fictional organization that helps free mannequins from their hum drum lives.
Their stop-motion-esque choreography, created by the Hidali group, translated amazingly from their high production music videos to the live stage. You can check out highlights from their set here, courtesy of Super Attacku, as well as some snaps we got of the crowd!
More photos of the event after the jump!
FEMM doesn’t just appear on stage, they are carried on by handlers to then “pose” them. These animated mannequins can’t move unless the music starts!
After their show, FEMM did a fan meet and greet where they robotically autographed photos, and posed with fans in their signature way. Here is myself and YumeNinja trying to channel our inner doll with FEMM!
Thanks again to GAMeBoi and Tune in Tokyo for the great night of music, dancing, and mannequins!
