ROONEY
9 p.m., Juanita's. $13 adv., $15 d.o.s.

These guys are a Frankenstein of every genre you like from the last five decades. They're a dollop of the '60s British invasion jingle-jangle, '70s post-hippie harmony, '80s new-wave attitude, '90s college-rock intuition and '00s indie-pop bop. It's an effortless melange of influence that's kept them in studios and on the road since their debut in 2003, which, for the record, opened with one of the best pieces of California-dusted pop of the decade in their Ric Ocasek-produced, Mamas and Papas-in-the-garage single "Blueside." They're joined by The Young Veins, a Kinks-biting (I mean that in the best way) '60s psych act formed by two ex-pats from baroque emo superstars Panic! At the Disco, and Black Gold, a promising summer pop duo already gaining notoriety as the guys behind the outro from "So You Think You Can Dance."
