Singer-songwriter Pete Yorn’s breakthrough tune, “Strange Condition,” encapsulated the whole adult-alternative thing back when it was released in 2001. Since then, he’s laid kinda low. His new album, Back and Fourth (which comes out next month), shows promise. The first single, “Shotgun,” is a soft rocker about a relationship that began too quickly and ended even faster. Throughout the song, you can hear the pain and disappointment the guy’s going through. It’s the centerpiece of Yorn’s new stage show, which comes to House of Blues (308 Euclid Ave., 216.523.2583) at 8:30 tonight. Tickets: $22.50- $29.50. — Julia Kazar
