Photo taken with my hand.
Moments after Rooney’s awesome sold out show at Irving Plaza in New York on June 14, 2010, the band staged a meet and greet with their fans. The deal was you had to buy their CD from the merch table, get a stamp and then you could meet the band. Had I known, I would have brought my cds from home, but since I didn’t know, I tried explaining this to the security guards that were kicking people out that didn’t have a stamp. As luck would have it, right as I was explaining my story to a security guard who didn’t seem to comprehend what I was talking about, lead singer Robert Schwartzman had just walked out from back stage. I explained this story to him, and he happily obliged to take a photo with me. Thanks again Robert, both for making great music, putting on a rockin’ show and of course, for being super cool!
