You didn’t really expect politically outraged rap-metal rabble-rousers the Fever 333 to be quiet right now, did you? The agit-rock outfit — led by outspoken frontman Jason Aalon Butler, formerly of letlive. — have announced that they will be livestreaming a full production performance complete with a 270-degree LED wall, this Wednesday, June 03rd, at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET via their official website, fever333.com, YouTube (below) and Facebook. The band has dubbed the event “Long Live the Innocent,” and donations will be fielded throughout, with all proceeds benefiting The Minnesota Freedom Fund and Black Lives Matter.
“This is a concentrated effort to encourage people to go beyond awareness and take action,” Butler proclaimed in a statement. “With localized efforts in the name of justice for a specifically targeted group of people in this country, this will serve as an artistic activation as well as a platform to activate necessary measures for social and racial reformation.
“The advantages we predict we will see if crossing demographics musically in preset to proliferate a message that MUST find its way over the barriers of genre. Music and art have served as the catalyst for socially inclined movements for as long as we can remember, but for some reason, at a time where we are now granted the ability to see how deeply flawed our system is, we have slowed the charge for change.
“Fever 333 has dedicated its entire platform to that change from its inception with its music, activism, even its own charity fund that sees a percentage of proceeds funneled from all profits the project receives. This is not a marketing method this is a tool for change. Please consider widening this message for the people with Fever 333 by joining us in this effort.”
