My Fair Fiend

You may remember the story of the Orem woman who was so offended by the lingerie-clad models on T-shirts in the window of the local PacSun store that she bought the lot of them and then returned them for a refund.

The Orem indie-rock band My Fair Fiend remembers. And frontwoman Callie Crofts decided to do something about it.

Crofts and her bandmates will conduct an "alternative" protest in the form of a free concert at which My Fair Fiend will give away 20 of those PacSun T-shirts. (She bought the 20 shirts for $598, from PacSun online.)

"One of our local businesses was essentially bullied out of selling merchandise they had every right to sell," Crofts said in a statement. "The personal opinions of a few people have affected the rights of many in our town and, as artists, this is of great concern to us."
