The Miller Closure rolls on with live music Saturday, Sept. 25, 6-7:30pm, continuing to infuse downtown with vitality during this insane rollercoaster ride that the COVID-19 crisis hath wrought.
Through it all, Mill Valley residents and guests have rediscovered the wonders of the 94941, from the delicious marriage of live music and al fresco dining to more outdoor seating than our community has enjoyed in decades. The voracious appetite for al fresco dining and shopping options has robust and passionate, verifying the “rising tide lifts all boats” theory in spades.
This weekend’s performance features singer-songwriters Glenn Burke and Michael Lehman, who boast Texas roots and California sand in their boots. Their songs ride the highs and lows along the highways and dirt roads of life.
Burke is back in Mill Valley after spending the past four years in Austin, Texas. He has an Americana sound with roots in Country, Rock, Folk and Blues. About 10 years ago, he formed the band Marshall Rhodes with Lehman. They released a self-titled CD that was a top 30 Americana radio chart album.
City Hall’s foresight to extend the outdoor business use program through June 2022 was perfect timing, as southern Marin enters its “late summer” period when the weather typically gets warmer than it has been all summer. It also matches the always-busy fall calendar as the Mill Valley Film Festival (Oct. 7-17) goes live with screenings all over Marin, including a free Movies in the Park screening of “Princess Diaries” on Oct. 8 at 7pm at Old Mill Park.
