Ah, rebirth. The sweet, cleansing release of the past, and a new and hopeful approach into the future. I know, maybe that’s a little too philosophical, but it’s what the Sweetwater Music Hall
had in mind when it recently resurrected the hallowed Mill Valley name this January for a new venue. This 107-year-old Masonic Hall (yes, where the Freemasons would meet) is better then ever after major renovations. As the old Sweetwater was known for artists such as Sammy Hagar, Carlos Santana and Bob Weir, Sweetwater Music Hall is hoping to bring back the “original Marin culture” with the music. This week, join folk singer-songwriter Dan Bern with his guitar and harmonica on Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Sweetwater Music Hall. 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 9pm. $22—$24. 415.388.3850.
