Tea Leaf Green at Alley Katz

Whatever it is that makes people drop out of school and follow bands from place to place in a fuel-efficient (but nevertheless smoky) vehicle, the San Francisco psychedelic rock outfit Tea Leaf Green has it. The secret may be in the plonking barroom piano, very classic, very Dead, or just the feel-goodness of it all. Plus, of course, the group tours widely and wisely, playing the kind of festivals that people quit jobs to go to, playing the kind of rock that allows for long digressions and looks to create an experience — the now, man — with its songs. Tea Leaf Green plays Saturday, March 17, 10 p.m.-2 a.m. $12-$14. 643-2816.

Street Dream Tour at Richmond Coliseum

Just you watch the streets in the days leading up to Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy's show here with Lil' Wayne, Baby, Fat Joe, Cash Money Millionaires, Bird Man, Rich Boy, Jim Jones, Shay and Dukwon, Thursday, March 15. The smart money says you'll see a bunch of snowmen out there, angry-looking snowmen on T-shirts, heralding the coming of Young Jeezy. The shirts have gotten people all frothy in the last couple of years as a coded reference to Jeezy's alleged coke-dealing past. As though T-shirts could ever mean anything but snug comfort! Jeezy's hard-core, Southern-fried hip-hop comes to town with all its possible meanings at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $26-$46. Call 262-8100 or visit www.ticketmaster.com.

Eric Taylor at Ashland Coffee & Tea

Here's one of those troubadors who added to the myth of Texas and the West, who told stories of people in dusty places, tragedies under big skies. Taylor has been singing and songwriting since the 1970s, a part of the Townes Van Zandt/Steve Earle scene, a stylistic pappy to Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen. He growls along like the country-mouse brother of city-mouse Tom Waits -- he sometimes seems to be singing despite, rather than because. In other words, there's loss and the awareness of it, and Taylor's simple songs twine around moments as they pass. He plays Ashland Saturday, March 17, at 8 p.m. $15. 798-1702.

Antelope at Gallery5

The D.C. trio meditates over their music, chewing its melodies and swallowing it a little at a time. Some tastes like punk, some like shoe-gazer rock. Antelope's tendency toward repetition becomes a little maddening after a whole song-full, but once it swings back to precise melodies and moody lyrics, it tastes good again. Antelope plays with Our Stable Violent Star Wednesday, March 14, at 8 p.m. $5. 644-0005. S
