Sweetwater Saloon Rocks Again

 Sweetwater Saloon was a much-beloved Marin County (California) music venue for 30 years until it closed down 5 years ago. It has now reopened in the old Masonic Hall in Mill Valley and is ramping up its schedule. Last night I was on my way home around 8PM and I stopped in to take a look. Well — Ausitin Leone and friends were scheduled, there was a  $5 cover, and what can a poor boy do?

   It was a great night. The room is twice as big as the old place and doesn’t have the cozy ambiance, but it feels good, muchly helped by leaving the rough timber ceiling beams (joists for upper story) uncovered. Full house, happy people, great rock and roll and blues by the hometown band.

  Here’s the new schedule: https://sweetwatermusichall.inticketing.com/events
