Rachel Garlin 

When: Fri., June 6, 8 p.m. 2008
Price: $19.50-$20.50

Like so many Berkeley-born musicians before her, Rachel Garlin now lives in New York, but she still visits home. The guitar-toting singer-songwriter returns to celebrate the release of her fourth CD, "Bound to Be Mountains," on Friday (June 6) at the Freight and Salvage (1111 Addison St.). With a small band of old friends backing her, Garlin sings a few love songs, but they tend to fall more into the stories of life experiences, her own and those she's observed. An evening's performance is filled with small events in people's lives that reflect bigger issues, from her father's wartime childhood to kids struggling through adolescence at KingMiddle School, where Garlin taught English on her way to becoming a full-time musician. Since then her travels have been busy, including taking first place at Newport Folk Festival's talent search, and having a song included in the soundtrack of a Sundance Film Festival award-winner ("Field of Fuel"). Garlin and her music have gotten around, but it's good to have her back home, even for just a night. $19.50 ($20.50 at door). Fri., June 6, 8 p.m. Freight and Salvage, 1111 Addison St., Berkeley. (510) 548-1761 or
