Steel Train, Holly Miranda, It’s True tonight…

By Tim McMahan,

So who is Steel Train? They’re a New Jersey five-piece that plays rock anthems with keyboards and guitars and (something tells me) a few fist-pumps. Their style is all over the board. A song like “Turnpike Ghost” is obviously influenced by Modest Mouse, while “I Feel Weird” sounds like something Springsteen would put together if he were 18 and starting from scratch after what we’ve all been through over the past decade. Their last album, Trampoline, came out on Drive Thru Records and was produced by Mark Trombino.

Opening is Holly Miranda, who you read about here, and SXSW conquering heroes It’s True. $10, 9 p.m.
