The wait is almost over, Bay Area folk/blues/Americana/swing/jazz fans.
That’s because the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley has announced it will reopen for in-person concerts in August.
The first show, appropriately enough, will be an open mic on Aug. 6., followed by a doubleheader of guitarists Peppino D’Agostino and Gyan Riley on Aug. 7.
The concerts will be held at 50 percent capacity for August, expanding to full capacity in September.
Also, the Freight and Salvage is “currently requiring all attendees to show proof of vaccination in order to enter,” according to an email from the club announcing the reopening. For the club’s health and safety guidelines, click here.

Upcoming shows include Vienna Teng (Aug. 13 and 20), the Ray Charles Project (Aug. 21), Bobby McFerrin & spirityouall (Sept. 25-16) and the Wailin’ Jennys (Sept. 28-29).
