What could be better than spending your Friday at the Freight and enjoying great live music, happy hour specials, dancing, eating and hanging out with friends! Admission is free,  so come on down, bring your pals and enjoy the celebration with music from MAD NOISE, American Nomad, The Lady Crooners, and Berkeley Blues Coalition! Doors open at 4:30, party gets going at 5PM.

MAD NOISE got their first review in 2010 by a friendly neighborhood wino next to City Lights Bookstore who said, "Y'all make MAD NOISE." Since then, they've been dubbed "Best Band" three years in a row by the SF Bay Guardian. SF Weekly calls them "the ubiquitous, scandalously funky acoustic/jazz/punk ensemble that haunts the streetcorners and sidewalks from Berkeley to the Mission."

American Nomad features Hassan El-Tayyab and Shiloh Parkerson on guitar and lead vocals, Matt Crimp on fiddle, Ryan Lukas on stand-up bass and vocals, Mikiya Matsuto on pedal steel, and Jim Chakya on banjo. The band plays in the wide open territory bordered by bluegrass, folk, and Western swing.

The Lady Crooners features Nadia, Megan, and Joseph Krilanovich, and Jason Bratz and Kevin Conness, who play what they call “almost country”—lovely harmonies, tasty guitar licks, and a touch of twang.

Berkeley Blues Coalition is Celeste Kopel on vocals, Nathan Phillips and Billy Dunaway on guitar, JV Fowler on drums, and Kit Newkirk on bass. They pay tribute to bluesy classic rock, cranked up to eleven.
