Can you handle taking BART to Berkeley? Bill Evans Banjo Extravaganza at the Freight, Saturday the 17th.  The Freight is really the mothership of the entire BA scene.

**Muuu-wahh** - big kisses for the suggestions, all!  Love
I got back into the Forum too late to see the show at The Freight, dang it all, but was able to catch Outbound, a band from Oakland on Sunday at The Milk Bar - and thoroughly enjoyed them, especially the guitar player's impressions of Del!
Appreciate the help   Flower
