Pete Yorn coming to Push Ultra Lounge (but no Scarlett Johansson ... yet)



Are we fools for holding out hope? Really, is it even a possibility?

Maybe not. But whenever Pete Yorn comes to your town, it's worth praying for Scarlett Johansson to come with him.

It's not out of the realm of possibility. They just released an album together, Break Up, and even our man says it's pretty damn good. Surely that's enough critical praise to convince Scarlett to come with Pete to St. Petersburg, right? Right?

Okay, fine. Even if Scarlett doesn't come with Pete, his gig Nov. 12 at Push Ultra Lounge is still a show worth checking out. Yorn has developed a strong following for gruff, ballady rockers like Crystal Village, For Nancy and Strange Condition. And Push will be a nice, offbeat venue in which to hear them.

The show is at 9 p.m. Nov. 12 at Push. Tickets are $17.50, which isn't a bad price. Go here for details.
