Channeling the likes of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead seems like a very natural thing to do for any naturalist-leaning jam band. Sometimes, however, capturing the effortlessness of the iconic '70s psychedelic rock band can feel pretty forced.  For some reason Tea Leaf Green never seems to have this problem. Perhaps it's because it comes from the same breeding ground of San Francisco or just knows how to apply the right mix of breezy vocal harmonies and improvisational interludes, this classic-minded quartet proudly wears its Deadhead influence on its collective sleeve, particularly working off the country-folk template of “Workingman's Dead” and “American Beauty.” Featuring local opening acts Silo Effect and Former Champions, Tea Leaf Green is scheduled to perform at the National on Friday April 9, at 8 p.m., $15-$17.
