They may no longer be Dire, but the Straits are back, performing hits like “Walk of Life” and “Money for Nothing,” led by Dire Straits members Alan Clark and Chris White. After the idea came to Clark to revamp the act, he and White handpicked their favorite musicians to join them at what was originally going to be a one-off performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall two years ago. The performance was so well received that the newly formed incarnation kept at it, and now the Straits make their way to the North Bay on Sunday, March 23, at Sweetwater Music Hall, 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $50—$55. 415.388.3850.
