Summer’s on the horizon and for some, it brings the desire to listen to sunny, ‘60s-influenced indie pop. Generationals, the New Orleans duo made up of Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, are here to help. The band’s latest album, Heza, released earlier this month, is chock-full of danceable rhythms and fuzzy vocals and yeah, at least one of them will end up in a car commercial or in the background of some oh-so-hip TV show, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying it. Generationals falls in with other indie rockers like Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jr. and TV Girl, which draw from the heady pop of the 1960s and prove that the decade’s musical influences are still heavily felt in our culture. After all, Mad Men did just come back from hiatus.
Generationals performs with Splashh at 8:30 p.m. at Rock & Roll Hotel, 1353 H St. NE. $12. (202) 388-7625. rockandrollhoteldc.com.
