ROONEY
9 p.m., Juanita's. $16 adv., $20 d.o.s.

All right, ladies of Little Rock: fess up. Which one of you is rubbing tummies with one (or more) of the guys from Rooney? It seems the Los Angeleno rockers play our town every sixth week. Not like that's a bad thing, though. As far as melodic, vintage rock played in the key of Vitamin D goes, you could do a lot worse than this band. Fronted by Robert Schwartzman, actor and cousin to Nicolas "The bees! The bees are in my eyes! Aaaarrrhhhh!" Cage, and rounded out by a crew of models and other thesps, Rooney may just be one of the best "good looking bands." (Hot people don't make good music: fact. All considered, even The Beatles were haggard-lookin' dudes.) Also, their name is fantastic, provided it's a tip of the hat to the Chicago high school dean of students and not the a-hole soccer diva with a face that looks like my knee.

Guitar poppers Voxhaul Broadcast and Australian garage rockers The Skybombers open.

Check it out: "I Can't Get Enough" (live, acoustic on Alloy TV)
