While he’s in town for his Wednesday, July 5 gig at the Music Mill, Pete Yorn isn’t going to spend his afternoon at the hotel watching Oprah. Nope, he’s going to play a free show at Luna’s new store at 52nd Street and College Avenue, starting at 5 p.m. The show will be recorded and released as an EP called You and Me Live at Luna Music. You can get the EP free if you pre-order Yorn’s next album, due out Aug. 29, at Luna. A big crowd can be expected for Yorn’s show at Luna. Remember, early is “on time” and “on time” means you’re late.
