Yelle took the smaller Hell stage in the Masquerade last night despite being internationally popular for over five years. Why are they still performing in small basements, you ask? Because they only sing in French. As long as they don't sing English songs, they're forever relegated to Hell.
Yelle opened the show in a hooded costume that looked like it was made from hot-glued Spanish moss taken from Savannah. The outfit covered her whole face for the entire first song before she revealed a chic giraffe print asymmetrical dress. The stage consisted of an upside-down peace sign "Y" that looked like it was made of aluminum foil. The petite Yelle has a snaggletooth and a strong nose, the kind of features that only a French woman can pull off. For her last costume change, she donned a red leopard print bodysuit with a hood. The two male band members wore safari guide outfits referencing their latest album Safari Disco Club."Je Veux Te Voir," but the best the crowd could do is make the last sound of each line. For their song "Que veux-tu," they asked the audience to hold up a heart-sign with both of their hands together. This kind of hoakiness would never pass at any other concert, let alone a dance show, but since it was said in a cute French accent, everyone obliged.
The group ended the show with a mash-up of the original "A Cause Des Garcons," their cover of the 1987 French hit, with the now ubiquitous TEPR remix that brought the Tecktonik dance trend to America.
French Horn Rebellion, the opening band, was not actually French but from Milwaukee. Their music aimed for a mix of MSTRKRFT and Passion Pit but ended up sounding like keyboards with the occasional French horn thrown in. They were all around terrible but had good energy.
A cause de Yelle, j'ai dansé mon ass off.
ooooohhhh, I'm so excited!! I can't wait to see them together!

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
