TIM FITE TO HOST CURRENT TV'S DAILY FIX MONDAY JULY 21

Iconic Musician Flooring Critics and Winning Fans with Engaging Live Shows

Musician/artist Tim Fite is currently on tour with the Watson Twins, and to keep himself occupied in between programming multi-media backdrops into his Mac and shopping for vintage trousers, the Brooklynite has taken on a number of hosting jobs. The first occurred when the tour passed through NYC, where Fite treated writers and bloggers to a "Monster vs Pizza" themed pizza party, and clay creations battled for dominance. The second will air on Monday, July 21, as Fite takes to the airwaves to host Current TV's "Daily Fix." Current TV is the world's leading peer-to-peer news and information network, seen in 51 million homes in the US and UK. Check local listings for showtimes.

Fite has been touring non-stop in support of his latest release Fair Ain't Fair, which "confirms that this enigmatic, genre-bending songwriter is one of rock 'n roll's most subversive renaissance men," according to Esquire magazine. In his quest, Fite has shared the road with everyone from Les Claypool to Adam Green, and his latest odyssey with the Watson Twins has been receiving enthusiastic reviews:

- "Tim Fite's set has always been magical, capturing a semi-childlike spirit with his strange stories and fun activities." --CMJ.com - "Tim Fite's new songs, as well as his storybook riddles, are always worth the price of admission." -- Spin.com - "The way he threw himself bodily into his performance demanded that attention be paid." -Washington Post - "[Tim Fite] is equally phenomenal live as he is recorded, and that certainly is saying something, considering Fite's most recent effort, Fair Ain't Fair, is an album I still tell everyone I know to check out...Tim Fite is more than a musician, he is an entertainer." -Consequence of Sound

The Tim Fite/Watson Twins tour continues through the end of July, and on August 7th, Fite will join Nada Surf for a special performance at the 2008 Twilight Concert Series in Salt Lake City.
