Generationals Tour Dates

Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, a.k.a. New Orleans indie rock duo Generationals, have been churning out bright, inviting guitar pop for a half-decade. (Their latest album, Heza, just came out this week.) They spin a soundtrack full of breezy tracks, and lyrics that linger:

- “That Old Feeling” by Chet Baker
- “Rent Money” by Dent May
- “Headache” by Frank Black
- “Put a Light On” by Generationals

The Dinner Party Download ( is a smart, funny public radio show about everything excellent in culture, from the company that brings you “Marketplace.” Think NPR meets Vanity Fair. In each episode, hosts Rico Gagliano & Brendan Francis Newnam talk with some of the world’s most interesting celebrities, and along the way equip you with bad jokes, fresh drink recipes, hot food finds, odd news items… and etiquette tips from the likes of Henry Rollins and Dick Cavett. Past guests include Michelle Williams, Judd Apatow, Kid Cudi, Sir Richard Branson and others. Wallpaper magazine calls us one of their “40 Reasons To Live In The USA.”




This song came on while I was waiting in line at Walgreens the other day and all I could think about was speeding down a freeway in a mid-90s sedan with Morgan, windows down and screaming along to this on the radio. Like, aerial shot over one of those skinny Florida roads that’s kind of a sand bar and kind of a bridge. Palm trees at night.

It’s not even a memory that exists, just one that should.

Bonus features.

I can never tell how serious people are about things they love on this medium but SERIOUSLY, this song.
