FEVER RAY

Rebel, Thurs­day (May 17)

NOW Magazine - - TIPSHEET -

Karin Drei­jer seems to morph into Fever Ray fol­low­ing a ma­jor life change. The Swedish mu­si­cian, best known as one half of now-de­funct pop duo the Knife, re­leased the self-ti­tled first al­bum in 2009 after be­com­ing a mother, and the rhyth­mi­cally wild fol­low-up Plunge came out last year fol­low­ing her di­vorce and com­ing out as queer. Plunge’s wild ex­per­i­men­ta­tion, BDSM fix­a­tion and blunt anti-pa­tri­ar­chal mes­sag­ing has more in com­mon with the Knife’s last hur­rah than Fever Ray’s dark and win­try de­but, as does the stage show fea­tur­ing a cast of cos­tumed dancers that vis­ually ex­pand the project from solo ef­fort to col­lec­tive ex­pe­ri­ence. With Bunny Michael. 7 pm. $37-$41. 11 Pol­son. tick­et­mas­ter.ca.
