Tea Leaf Green and The Mother Hips Share Crystal Bay Valentines Weekend
Tea Leaf Green made its annual pilgrimage to Crystal Bay, NVs Crystal Bay Club Casino. In 2007, Tea Leaf Green swapped opening headlining duties with New Monsoon and last year the quartet flip flopped with Hot Buttered Rum. This year Tea Leaf opened for the Mother Hips on February 13 and headlined the room on Valentines Day. Near the end of their Saturday set, the members of Tea Leaf Green brought out Bay Area guitarist Sean Leahy to play guitar on a cover of Bob Dylans Lay Lady Lay, the TLG original Sex in The 70’s and Buddy Hollys Everyday. Mother Hips guitarist Tim Bluhm then emerged to help Tea Leaf Green close its set with a cover of Bob Dylans If You Want To Go.
Tea Leaf Green will kick off a run of shows at Milwaukees Turner Hall Ballroom on March 4, while the Mother Hips will appear at Seattles Tractor Tavern tomorrow.
