The Fever 333 at The National in Richmond
The Fever 333. Where do I start?
I had the chance to interview these guys at Welcome to Rockville 2018, a chance I wish I had taken. I had listened to their song “We’re Coming In” before the festival, but didn’t know much about them. Since I had a pre-scheduled interview with Thrice, I wasn’t able to speak to The Fever 333.
I jammed their album Made An America for a significant amount of time on my drive back home – and was left wanting more. The album has 7 tracks, which are all incredibly energetic, and for me, inspiring. So obviously I looped it about 4 times before switching to something else.
I knew this was a band I wanted to see live, so I checked their tour schedule. Turns out they were going to be playing in Richmond just two days later, supporting The Used and Red Sun Rising! They were able to get me a media pass and photo pass for the show, and I couldn’t have been more excited.
I got there with minutes to spare before they took the stage, so I linked up with the photographers and set up camp at the foot of the stage.
Right. Off. The. Bat.
In your face, loud, electrifying, passionate, and raw – that’s the perfect way to describe this group. Their message is simple: community, charity, change. The Fever is bringing audiences together, because chances are we all have something in common – we’ve all been marginalized, treated unfairly, and discriminated against. But at the end of the day, we’re all the same. We do have a voice, our feelings do matter, and we can create a change in the world.
The Fever 333 will get your attention with their music and stage antics. I mean, these guys were jumping off stage and into the mosh pit WITH their instruments, hanging from the balcony of a historical building over the crowd below. They’re going to keep your attention with their honesty and message. To those looking to check out a new band, I submit to you The Fever 333. It was awesome. I can’t wait to see them again.
