Babes All Rock, a festival featuring female identifying fronted bands is coming to Baby’s All Right on December 3rd.
50% of the proceeds go to the Mount Sinai Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention (SAVI) Program, which aids survivors of sexual assault. Sponsors like Guitar Center and Suffragette City will also be donating goods for a raffle, and 100% of raffle proceeds will go to the organization.
The festival lineup feature’s badass babes and leaders in the indie and underground music scene including: Combo Chimbita, Prima, A Deer A Horse, Big Quiet, Debbie Downer, Verdigrls, Espejismo, Ex-Girlfriends, Treads, DJ Jessica Dye (High Waisted) and more.
Headliners Combo Chimbita are rooted in Colombia, based in New York, and live in the future. Inspired by composer, bandleader, poet and philosopher, Sun Ra’s Afrofuturism, Combo Chimbita champions Tropical Futurism, “the idea that the future doesn’t necessarily have to be this super white Western high-tech Star Wars stuff; that the indigenous ideas and culture of people of color, people of Latin America, can also represent a magical and substantial future. It’s a vision that maybe a lot of people don’t necessarily think about often. The old and deep knowledge that indigenous people have of the land has been neglected for many years as part of capitalism and colonization.” Their latest record Abya Yala is out now.
Babes All Rock seeks to provide visibility and opportunity for female-identifying musicians in an arena that “has historically been created and curated by men, for men. This imbalanced precedent in rock music motivated the fest’s creators to produce a day-long festival that celebrates the uniquely rich community of female musicians in NYC.”
Mark your calendar, and get ready to enjoy a full day of women supporting women, in all their amazing self-identifying shapes, sizes, colors, and voices. Between the lineup, message, and supporting a good cause, you can’t go wrong.
