Phil MarshSherman, set the Wayback Machine for 1968. We’re going to the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse on San Pablo Avenue, just down the street from Everett & Jones Barbecue. It’s opening night, and Phil Marsh is playing...

Or, if your Wayback happens to be on the blink, you can come see the Freight’s first performer 46 years later, in our splendid digs in downtown Berkeley. The old metal folding chairs are long gone, but you can still enjoy a cookie and a cup of herbal tea, and you no longer need to sneak down to the corner grocery if you want to buy a beer.

And Phil? Since his fateful Freight debut, he’s played with the Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band, served as musical director of the Pickle Family Circus, written songs for the San Francisco Mime Troupe—and he’s still going strong, making his own quirky blend of traditional folk, country, and blues, along with his clever, offbeat originals.

We never know exactly what to expect from Phil—and neither does Phil!—but we do know that the show will feature a flurry of great guest performers. Join us for a celebration of 46 years of wonderful music, and still going strong!
