Juliette Lewis coming to the Social in Orlando




There are a million Scientologist actors. There are a million Scientologist rock stars.

But a Scientologist actor AND rock star? Those are rare. Isaac Hayes, maybe? Bijou Phillips? Beck, if you count his guest spot on Futurama? ("The parts when I was awake blew ... my ... mind.")

The most well-known might be Juliette Lewis. Which is why we were a little surprised to see that the Oscar-nominated actress (and nothing-nominated musician) is skipping Clearwater -- and Tampa Bay as a whole -- on her upcoming fall tour.

She will, however, be playing The Social in Orlando on Sept. 26, alongside American Bang and The Ettes. Tickets to the show are $15-$17.

Lewis has tried pretty hard to distinguish herself from other celebrity musicians, playing festivals like Lollapallooza. She's got a bluesy, raspy voice and a very '90s, alternative rockr-grrl sound, and while we remain skeptical, we'll at least give her the nod over Kevin Costner and Modern West.

Man, what is it with these celebrities? First Kevin Bacon disses Tampa, then Juliette gives us the slip. Dogstar, you are officially on notice.
