Generationals - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Generationals
New Orleans natives Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer struck up a friendship as high school freshmen and formed Generationals in 2007 after graduating college.

Though their retro vibe bears the influence of Phil Spector's mid-century pop, Generationals' sound is wide-ranging and diverse, incorporating elements of britpop, dance and electronic music infused with rhythmic guitar lines, computer noises, RZA beats, and poppy vocals that sometimes sound like a Janet Jackson/Prince face-off.

Above all, with each release the band continues zeroing in on their strong suit: superior pop songwriting.
Springtime Carnivore - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Springtime Carnivore
"Springtime Carnivore was born on the night of a full moon in the summer of the year of the dragon. She is the seventh of twelve siblings. Her father was a painter and her mother baked wedding cakes. Her favorite color is turquoise. Her favorite food is purple Pez. In a past life she slept beneath the stars in far away Western places and died in a gun fight with Annie Oakley.

Following high school, Springtime Carnivore joined a traveling circus company. She was a talented and nimble acrobat but her career was cut short by a tragic tightrope accident. “We had been traveling for days trying to maintain our schedule and we were all sick and tired and lonesome,” she recently wrote in a letter to her fans. “One night during a show in Twin Falls, Idaho, my energy was all used up and I made a misstep on the tightrope. Long story short, I fell three stories and broke my fibula.”

Although the tightrope incident killed Springtime’s big top dreams, it opened the door to another dormant aspiration. “While my poor leg was healing I discovered an old piano in the attic of my great great grandma’s second’s cousin’s third husband’s house. I dusted it off, paid a blind man to tune it by ear and I’ve been playing ever since. Inside me were all these songs about all these things I’ve seen and all these places I’ve been. Just came pouring out like tears."

The result of Springtime’s latent piano passions can be heard on this first release from the young songstress. Brought to you by LebensStrasse. Available all places cool discs are sold."
