Freight & Salvage Breaks Ground for New Facility
March 21, 2008
Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, the famed Berkeley folk and trad music venue, will break ground on their new facility in Berkeley's Arts & Cultural District on April 1. The new building will double the seating from the current venue, which the organization moved into during the '80s. The new concert space will have 440 seats, providing more space for educational and outreach programs as well as expanded presenting opportunities. The Berkeley Society for the Preservation of Traditional Music, which currently operates Freight & Salvage, plans to open the venue in 2009.
