Go Fever's Acey Monaro

My KUTX // September 25, 2021

Go Fever is a familiar presence in Austin’s rock scene, playing alongside A Giant Dog and recording at White Denim’s Radio Milk studios. But singer and songwriter Acey Monaro’s Australian roots bring something else to this city. Her songs are filtered through a love of classic country and the kind of loose pub rock you can only find in Australia. You can rock out, but you might miss the sharp wit of her storytelling.

On October 8, Go Fever returns with Velvet Fist, and this week on My KUTX, Monaro is back as our guest DJ. She’s come up with an hour of songs that have influenced the new record–Squeeze, jump blues, Australian jukebox hits–and songs that have kept her going through trying times. Hear Go Fever’s My KUTX on Saturday, September 25 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime in the player above.
