It’s been a little over a year since The Fever 333 played their first ever gig out the back of a van in a Californian parking lot. Since then, everything the band has done has felt like An Event. From the release of debut-track-slash-statement-of-intent ‘We’re Coming In’ to every demonstration since, the band are full of powerful intent.
Today is their third gig in three days, but there’s no hint of exhaustion. Appearing with a bag over his head in front of a white sheet, Jason Aalon Butler raises his fist before the curtain drops and he’s joined by a wall of protestors. Deliberate from the word go, this is a protest through and through. Asking questions about gun violence, racism, pent up frustrations and your own ability to effect change, the band are confrontational and make no apologies about it. Using both voice and bodies to get the message across, it’s a show about standing up and speaking out.
