Robert Schwartzman

Robert Schwartzman is a man of many hats—member of the Coppola family dynasty, son of Talia "Yo Adrian" Shire, occasional actor whose most famous role was playing a teenage Anne Hathaway's boyfriend in The Princess Diaries, frontman of the poppiest of all pop-rock bands, Rooney, who peaked around 2003 after playing "I'm Shakin'" on The O.C. but are still making music together. Schwartzman's also become something of an activist after befriending a Tibetan Buddhist monk, and all of the profits from his 2011 solo album, Double Capricorn, are going straight to the Tibetan Healing Fund, which provides medical care to women and children in rural Tibet. Double Capricorn is a giddy electro-pop affair that should gel easily with stalwart Rooney fans. So should the catchy sounds of Schwartzman's current tour co-headliner, another pop-rocker's moonlighting project, Brian Bell of Weezer's The Relationship. With BellaMaine. ERIN K. THOMPSON
