Fever 333 Announce “Long Live The Innocent” Livestream Benefit Concert

Fever 333 will be livestreaming a special “Long Live The Innocent” benefit show on June 3 at 3pm PDT / 6pm EDT via fever333.com. The event will raise money for The Minnesota Freedom Fund and Black Lives Matter.

Jason Aalon Butler commented:

“This is a concentrated effort to encourage people to go beyond awareness and take action. 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.”
