Sturdy and steam-powered, Old 97's ruled the 1990s as an alternative to the decade's bounty of alt-country rickshaws. The Texas lifers have survived two decades of shifting musical currents, a fling with a major label (Elektra) and a parallel solo career by matinee idol Rhett Miller. October 2010 release The Grand Theatre, Vol. 1 (New West), the band's ninth LP, is its nimblest in years. Those Darlins open. Tickets $18 in advance, $20 at the door. 10 p.m. Friday. Tipitina's, 501 Napoleon Ave., 895-8477; www.tipitinas.com
