Visit www.tealeafgreen for info on the new song, as well as details on the band's forthcoming studio album, due in the spring.

Hawking for Hawkins
The last time Ron Hawkins played Mohawk Place, the joint was mobbed. So this time around, the Canadian troubadour will perform two Mohawk shows, one tonight and one on Saturday. Hawkins will be joined for both gigs by his Lowest of the Low bandmate Stephen Stanley, as well as cellist and vocalist Alex McMaster. Hawkins and Stanley will perform new music, fan favorites and classics from the Low discography. Buffalo's own Chateau Terrace will open. Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 day of show. Call 800-838-3006.
