Just got news that a couple more Fair to Midland benefit shows have been added to the two that were already announced in the wake of the band's pretty gnarly crash out in the Arizona desert.
The new shows include a second night in Dallas at the Curtain Club (on Friday, February 12, meaning the band will be playing a short two-night run at the Deep Ellum club) and another, which the van-less band won't be able to attend, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, at a club called 1st Ave Live.
The band has also announced that, once its van and gear has been replaced, any and all extra money earned during these show (which kinda seems a given now that there's four of them, yeah?) will be donated to a Haiti relief fund.
