Steel Train 

Thursday, November 17; Creepy Crawl (412 North Tucker Boulevard)

Kinda jammy, kinda classic-rock and kinda alt-country, Steel Train have nevertheless found themselves lumped in with their more age-appropriate post-punk and emo counterparts. Sure, they're on Drive-Thru Records and sing about, like, feelings and stuff, but they also contemplate the relationships between fathers and sons, sympathize with alley cats, and simultaneously praise and curse the road. And after two EPs, the New York quintet chose Stephen Barncard (Jefferson Airplane, the Dead) to produce its debut full-length, Twilight Tales from the Prairies of the Sun. If that's still not enough of a non-emo indicator, consider that Twilight's special guests include late-'60s Byrds drummer Gene Parsons and mandolin innovator David Grisman.
