Let me just start out by saying this was a fantastic night. Last Tuesday night The Mattador and I drove to Chapell Hill, NC to go see Generationals at the Local 506, located on the further end of Franklin Street nearest to Carrboro. Neither of us had been before, and were pleasantly surprised by the layout and size of the music venue. As we arrived, we caught the last few songs of the opening act Lowell. With her pastel clothes and glittering face crystals, she bounced around on stage to catchy beats, eventually entering the crowd and dancing with concert goers. There was a short break, and then Generationals took the stage. Playing their entire set with a colorful light show made the music that much better. The crowd danced and sang along with old favorites like “Put A Light On,” but also to new beats like “Black Lemon” and “Gold Silver Diamond.” At one point Ted even began climbing on the front stage speakers, still playing his electric guitar. After the show, we headed back to the merch table. The Mattador picked up a Generationals cassette, and I picked up each band’s newest LP. We chatted with Lowell for awhile and took some awesome pics (see below). She also drew me some art on the back of my new record slip. We made our way back to the stage to meet up with Grant and Ted. We chatted outside for a bit, took more pictures, and even got them to record an awesome liner for WKNC (tune in to the station to hear it sometime). It was a great night and a great show, and can be summed up in one overarching statement: them’s good people.
