The Repressions celebrated the Summer Solstice in sunshine, with many other talented female artists and female-led bands.
The Repressions are so very glad to be playing Make Music New York 2019, this year in Athens Square Park in Astoria, Queens, NYC, on Friday June 21. In association with Astoria Music Collective and Venus Envy Artist Coalition, this fantastic lineup will feature female musicians and female-led bands. The Repressions are scheduled for 5:30pm, but come all day for great entertainment. Free and family friendly! Poster by Caryn Cast.
We’ve been hearing that question a lot lately. Just to make the unofficial official, or in case you were wondering… Ben is still here, he’s just over there. He is finishing his Master’s degree in Philosophy, and focusing on his band Ruderals, who just released their first EP. Ben will always be a Repression, and there would be no Repressions without Ben. Ben is simply exercising his bandmate-drama clause in the contract, and taking a sabbatical. Earning a Master’s degree takes time, and lots and lots and lots of reading and writing (actually fun stuff for a Repression.) Barbara and Nate and the songs miss him, but wish him all of the best things. They need not go far to wish him well, because even if he doesn’t have time to play music just now, he’ll probably be right there, eating cereal or making them laugh. That’s just what family is.
