The boys of Tea Leaf Green have had their share of love-induced tribulations. But though the self-proclaimed “bruised romantics” have been beaten down by love, they’re using their contemporary style to mark their personal sacrifices and triumphs. Formed in 1996, their most recent album Radio Tragedy is a keeper, but it’s live and onstage where the band shines. The 13-year veterans of Tea Leaf Green share their softer side, Saturday, Dec. 17, at the Palm Ballroom. 100 Yacht Club Drive, San Rafael. 9pm. $20—$30. 415.389.5072.
