Babe City – the freshly formed all-female all-star quartet featuring Olivia Quillio, Meg Duffy, MaryLeigh Roohan (of MaryLeigh & the Fauves) and Caroline Corrigan (of the Red Lions) – made their stunning debut at Valentine’s Music Hall last week opening for Langhorn Slim.

Now they’ve nailed down another high-profile booking – as the opening act for soulful singer-songwriter Sean Rowe, as he introduces songs from his upcoming sophomore album for Anti- Records at the Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany at 8pm on Saturday, March 17.

Tix are $13 in advance; $15 at the door.
