The San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band takes to the road again for an out- of-town pops concert in the style of traditional summer bandstand concerts in the park. Come kick off pride month with great music in the great outdoors. The San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band plays its summer concert at the Lake Merritt Bandstand in Oakland, near Children’s Fairyland.
