Rooney, 9 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at Sunset Tavern
The California-based indie rockers are coming to Seattle as a part of their “Break The Wall” tour, which also celebrates the band’s 20th anniversary. Aside from lead singer Robert Schwartzman, as of 2016, the band has a completely new lineup. They’ve released four studio albums and their 2007 song “When Did Your Heart Go Missing?” has been their most successful single to date. Schwartzman is also an actor who is perhaps best known for his role as Michael Moscovitz in “The Princess Diaries.”
