Fever is a nightlife app (see screen detail at left) that's building a network of "Ambassadors" or tastemakers that recommend events in Europe and New York. Netshow.me is based in Brazil and provides live streaming for musicians with comparisons to Stageit. Fever recently announced a hefty round of what they're calling seed funding to the tune of $3 million from a group of investors. While Netshow.me raised an undisclosed round of funding apparently from a single investor.
