At the concert, My Fair Fiend will give away those same PacSun t-shirts, for free, to the band's fans.
"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."
Crofts' anti-censorship anger extends to the Orem City Council, whose members (except one) signed a letter of disapproval to PacSun.
When Crofts went to the PacSun store at Orem's University Mall, where the whole dust-up started, she was told that the chain's corporate office forbid the Orem store from selling the "offending" shirts.
So Crofts bought 20 shirts, total price $598, from PacSun online, using what she and the band has earned from their music on iTunes. (Crofts also works part time in a music shop.)
Crofts recently won a songwriting competition at Muse Music Cafe and the grand prize is a free, recorded show at the venue. Crofts decided to use that award to hold this "freedom of expression demonstration."
