Lift your head up, lift your head up, lift your head up, lift your head up now! It is about truly taking in all of the beauty in the moments and the world around you, and also about looking directly at the things in our world that need action and reform. Here is a live performance from The Repressions’ latest show at c’mon everybody in Brooklyn.
There are simply too many good things to say about last night’s show at c’mon everybody~ Fantastic stage, lighting and sound from Somer and Eric, gorgeous high energy music and performance from headliner Earl Yellow, and the type of crowd that just sees you and gives and what an amazing night! Much thanks and love to Earl Yellow and C’mon Everybody !

Doing a Twitch show is a unique performing experience. While the venue has more creature comforts, you tend to play much longer sets than at a music venue. You have to be ready for anything at either gig, but there is a tension and freedom taking random requests and improvising on a song you may have never played before. Nate did a fantastic job winging it with one of Barbara’s favorite Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, Dosed, on YouTube today.
To The After is a song of reversal, of fear, and hope through living in the present while the future is only questions.
