Jeff's Weekly Pick: Rooney @ Soundwave Wednesday June 16, 2010

LA- based rock band Rooney make their return visit to San Diego this Wednesday. This time the band will headline the recently remodeled and renamed Mission Beach venue Soundwave(formerly Canes). Those who have not been in the renovated space will hardly recognize it from its previous appearance. What does markedly improved lighting, better sight lines and a more open space mean? A much better overall experience for the concert goer, having been there myself several times recently. The main ingredient for a good show is the music, and Rooney fits the bill perfectly. This is a band that has experienced its share of highs and lows in a ten year history. The band released its third full length, Eureka, on June 8. Many of the songs are immediately likable, while main songwriter Robert Schwartzman is trying to capture the spirit from the band's prior efforts while building a bridge into the future. Not all of it works all the time, but their live show promises to be a good time for all those in attendance.

The Young Veins and Black Gold set the stage.
