Love Austin Music: Go Fever

By: Laurie Gallardo

Your Austin Music Minute maven has hearts in her fluttery eyes. But before you go, “Ewww…,” and get grossed out, remember that it’s all due to a musical celebration of the best kind.

February is Love Austin Music Month, and all month long KUTX, the City of Austin Music & Entertainment Division, the Austin Music Foundation and several other local music org’s will collectively shine the love light on Austin-based artists. True, KUTX does this all year long, but February calls for a bit extra – and that means more musical discovery for you.

The AMM kicks off this love fest with badass pop-rock monsters Go Fever, fronted by one of the best songwriters around, Acey Monaro. The track featured on today’s AMM, recent KUTX Song of the Day “Feel So Much,” an infectious melodic jolt making one weak in the knees with the simple but heart-piercing chorus “I really want you”, is on the band’s new EP, Daydream Hawker. Go Fever celebrates its release with a massive blowout of a party tomorrow (Saturday) night at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River. They share the bill with another band celebrating a debut record release, Honk Kong Wigs, as well as Hard Proof, Being Dead, and – check this out – “jazzy avant-garde spoken word beatnik collective” Grant Cross’ Arms.

Oh hell yes. Doors at 8 p.m. Don’t miss a single bit of it. Presented by KUTX 98.9. Recommended like there’s no tomorrow.
