Cooley of Drive-By Truckers performs in Mill Valley
Published 11:21 pm, Tuesday, December 5, 2017
Singer and guitar player Mike Cooley has spent the past decade-plus leading one of the more consistently rowdy and reliable live bands: the Drive-By Truckers. The Athens, Ga., alt-country band has become synonymous with rocking, plugged-in fun.
But Cooley is on a solo acoustic tour now, set to play the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley on Thursday, Dec. 7. The more intimate experience will place a premium on Cooley’s songwriting and showcase his latest album, “The Fool on Every Corner.”
Even without the rest of the band, expect to hear a few Drive-By Truckers songs as well.
