L.A. Witch
Ybor City is turning into Babetown for a day this fall.

Love Your Rebellion’s annual femme-forward celebration of rock and roll and activism comes back to Tampa on Nov. 19 when Babefest 2022 takes over Crowbar in Ybor City, Florida. Garage-rock favorite L.A. Witch plays its first Bay area show in five years as part of the festivities, and tickets go on sale Friday, Aug. 26 at 10 a.m. for $20. Additional acts will be announced in the weeks leading up to the festival.
Babefest last landed at Crowbar when it brought Chastity Belt to Tampa for its only Florida tour.

Founded by Angela Page in 2016, Babefest expanded out of Ft. Myers by staging shows in St. Petersburg and Tampa Heights over the last seven years. The festival’s parent organization, Love Your Rebellion, has a mission “to empower marginalized groups through the arts, including women, immigrants, people of color, people from queer and trans communities, people from low-income communities, and people with disabilities.”

It achieves the goals by employing musicians and artists from marginalized groups in the arts and assisting people from marginalized groups via low-cost or free access to music, art, writing, and therapeutic arts.
