Annual Benefit Sweetwater Music Hall April 22nd

TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR MILL VALLEY LIBRARY BENEFIT AT SWEETWATER MUSIC HALL APRIL 22ND

Starting at 6:30pm on Tuesday, April 22, headliner Jesse DeNatale, award-winning singer/songwriter Jafar Thorne, along with Oakland-based indie rockers Felsen will take the stage for a night of music and dancing to benefit the Mill Valley Library.
Tickets cost $25 and all proceeds go to the Library. Click HERE to purchase tickets.

Headliner, Jesse DeNatale, has been called “one of the most distinctive singers and creative lyricists of his generation.” His most recent local performance was at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Jafar Thorne has developed a unique, soulful, poetic voice and style largely influenced by artists as diverse as Jackson Brown, Bruce Cockburn and The Grateful Dead. Felsen’s music is both smart and sexy; for Alt Rock fans of Wilco, Radiohead, Beck and the classic sound of Pink Floyd.

The Mill Valley Library Foundation has provided more than $170,000 in new funding to the library from private donations over the past three years. The Foundation and Friends support programs and services not funded by the City of Mill Valley, including the popular First Friday Series, myriad children’s programs, creative writing workshops, late night study halls for teens and a new computer lab.
