FEVER RAY was the most amazing show I have ever been to. It wasn't even a show, it was a dramatic art performance. Seriously. Karin Dreijer Anderssen incorporated the "shaman" character from the "Seven" video into her live performance; he was in costume along with the rest of the band and their whimsical appearance, and Karin with her rotting organic corpse of a woman which is supposed to be symbolic of something. It was moving as hell. I was like a giddy schoolgirl during the first three songs, after which Karin revealed her blonde hair, painted face and grimly dressed body. A weird and creepy, incredible and talented, foggy and lasered-out show that is going down in my history books. This performance was the definition of too rude. Karin is herself, she doesn't seem to care what others think, and as a result, a masterpiece is born.
