Rooney, Run River North – The Irenic
You probably remember Rooney’s upbeat California-centric songs blasting from the speakers of Hollister or Abercombie & Fitch when you were a highschooler. (Editor’s note: if you’re old like me, you associate them with The OC.) See Robert Schwartzman and company’s new look at the Irenic for their Ultrasonic Summer tour. More info.
