YELLE Visits Empty Bottle (Chicago)
“Chicago, are you ready to sweat?!” yelled YELLE‘s lead singer Julie Budet kicking off their show this past Sunday night. Sweat, we did; talk about some serious Sunday Funday. Dancing to the energetic vibes YELLE is known for through their uptempo songs, Chicagoans joined the French electro pop group as they stopped in the Windy City for part of their Club Party Tour,
Dressed in a red sequined skirt with a matching short sleeved red sequined jacket, YELLE dominated the small, yet intimate, stage at Empty Bottle, a music venue located in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village neighborhood.
YELLE started off the night with one of their recent tracks ‘Ici & Maintenant’ (Here & Now) and played songs from all of their albums including Safari Disco Club, Pop Up and Complètement Fou. Their energy was infectious and the crowd’s excitement palpable as YELLE did a lot with the little space they had. Dancing from one end to the next, Julie Budet didn’t let the small stage restrict her ability to command the room or engage with the crowd.
‘Je Veux Te Voir,’ ‘A Cause des Garçons,’ ‘Que Veux Tu,’ ‘Safari Disco Club’ and ‘Interpassion’ were only some of the handful of songs they performed throughout the night. Playing to a sold out venue, the intimate setting was the perfect environment for a group that doesn’t need much to deliver a lot.
This is a group that doesn’t tour often, let alone featuring multiple U.S. cities. Their last tour in 2015 only included cities in the West (played at Coachella) and East coast (played at Full Moon Fest in Brooklyn, NY). Catch one of their upcoming shows, and most likely get a chance to meet them. A trusted source, yours truly, witnessed them invite show attendees to stick around for a few while they changed into a fresh pair of clothes after closing out their Midwest performance.
