FEVER 333 Announce ‘Long Live The Innocent’ Charity Livestream To Support Black Lives Matter

FEVER 333 have announced “Long Live the Innocent,” a one night only livestream performance which will air tonight (June 3rd) at 6 PM ET / 3 PM PT on their website.

During the event, fans are encouraged to make donations with all proceeds going to the Minnesota Freedom Fund and Black Lives Matter initiatives aimed at advancing the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through mass-mobilization and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.

“This is a concentrated effort to encourage people to go beyond awareness and take action,” said frontman Jason Aalon Butler 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.”

The Minnesota Freedom Fund helps arrested protestors access bail money as the protests continue. Those donating can “match” an amount given by another person.
