Don't know how the rumors got started -- Seattle-based Fisher Communications-owned Pegasus News does, however -- but Fair to Midland's publicist just e-mailed Unfair Park and everyone else to let us and you know that the band ain't playing no stinkin' free show on Jul7 25 at the House of Blues. Says the release of the rumors:
This is not true and Fair to Midland will NOT be there and unfortunately, they were never supposed to be.
This free show is a CD release show for Evans Blue only (with whom the guys have just played a few shows with).
Please make sure to remove Fair to Midland from any calendar listing or show information you may have included them on.
Fair to Midland will be back to Dallas soon – they are just looking for the right opportunity to make up the show earlier this month with 69 Eyes that they had to cancel.
Guess we'll just have to make other plans now, wanh. --Robert Wilonsky
