Smart bets: Sol Driven Train

Sol Driven Train is on a mission to make you dance, and the quirky Charleston-based sextet will try anything — breezy rock, ska-inspired jams, even a couple of slow, falsetto hip-swayers for the sake of contrast — to make it happen. In fact, the band’s recently released music video for “Crazy Dancer” serves as an ode to the musicians’ beloved off-beat crowd collaborators: “Got two left feet/Could not find a beat if it was hog-tied, laid down out in the street,” the band sings with admiration. “You know you’re no ballerina/but there’s something even sweeter/about that klutzy demeanor.” The ever-smiling group plays in support of its aptly titled 12th album Dance! at New Mountain on Friday, June 26, at 10:30 p.m. $10.
