Tea Leaf Green & Drive-By Truckers

A couple concerts of note this weekend.

Tea Leaf Green plays a free show at Plan 9 (the greatest music store in Richmond) in Carytown at 5 PM on Thursday. Then they'll play their full show at Toad's Place that night. Doors open at 8. Tickets are $17. TLG is a jam band in the blues/classic rock tradition. If you like bands like The Jayhawks, Widespread Panic, Phish, moe., Disco Biscuits or Hot Tuna, you might dig these guys. I saw them once a couple years ago and thought they would good, definitely good enough to check out again sometime.

The Drive-By Truckers will be at the Charlottesville Pavilion on Saturday with the Avett Brothers opening. Doors open at 6, show at 7, tickets are $30. I've heaped enough praise on the Truckers in past blogs. Check 'em out if you can. If I wasn't leaving for a conference early the next morning, I'd be tempted to head out to C'ville myself.

That's it for this week. Have a great weekend!
