NXNE 2013: Fevers @ The Hideout by Laurie McGregor

THURSDAY — I want more people to know about Fevers. Why don't more people know about Fevers? Anyone who likes anything good should know about Fevers! The tight five-piece band from Ottawa packs a whalloping punch of indie-electro-dance-pop that should turn any bar into a whirling, frenzied, sweaty dance party. Think along the lines of Mother Mother mixed with Metric with some Yeah Yeah Yeahs thrown in to balance everything out... Sadly, their Thursday night set at the Hideout was under-attended, and the only dance party happening was the amazing one in my head, but Fevers put on a damn good show regardless and reaffirmed my now burning desire to tell everyone I know to check these guys out. Seriously. Do it. They are great and play the mandolin sometimes. They even scream into it! Screaming into a mandolin! Where else will you see that happen?!
