Lesbians and friends take over the stage at Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, 8pm Friday, Nov. 13, in a concert benefiting Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a national non-profit that has defended LGBT and other civil rights in many recent legal cases and political battles. Pam Delgado and Monica Pasqual of Bay Area-based Blame Sally, one of the groups performing at the benefit, came by Out in the Bay‘s studios Thursday to share their music, tell us the REAL story behind the band’s name, why they support Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and about their experiences being queer in the music world. Eric Jansen hosts. (Aired Thurs., Nov. 12, on 91.7fm/ kalw.org)
