What do you do when a local band that you love contacts you and asks you to fill in for a cancellation just five hours before showtime? You say yes, of course, and if you are The Repressions, you say yes and get manic, sleepy, worried, manic again, and then happy and grateful. What a fantastic show! We are grateful!

THE REPRESSIONS are an art-therapy-funk-rock-vaudeville band featuring Barbara Dragon and Nate Lay. Some of the songs they write are about books, nature, defending animals, injustice, being weird, and living with wild emotions. Their style has been described by audiences as radical folk-rock, ethereal indie rock, anti-bully music and a Saturday morning cartoon for adults. The band dedicates their music to anyone who has ever been made to feel small for being sensitive, kind, smart, or ill.
The Repressions play lively shows every month all over New York City, incorporating prizes and bubbles and original artwork into their performance. And they love you.
