Often we see the direction, rightly right for us, and yet when that moving step is required, we get all moonstuck. The path to change requires our trust in ourselves.
As we all know, the world is in a great state of unease. New York City is just one little part of that, and staying as safe as we can is all we do for today.
Our shows have all been postponed, so we will be playing online, sharing our interview series, making and sharing artwork, comics and memes, live streaming, with other bands and artists and friends, and doing what we can. Please see our youtube channel, instagram and facebook page for daily content (links are above.) We are grateful for that chance, grateful for each other, and grateful for you.
Luna the Mooncat is very happy right now, because The Repressions are staying at their castle and she gets even more attention than usual! Love to all of you and the animals!
-Barbara and Nate
You are formally invited… Espresso 77 in Jackson Heights (Queens) on Saturday March 14th at 8:30 pm, a 2-3 hour show, artwork, music, vegan desserts, snacks, coffee, wine… A relaxing atmosphere… All ages and no cover. See you there!

The Repressions are so very honored to have won Best Original Song in the February Vegan Music Makers celebration, for their song “We Are the Strange Ones!”
Vegan Music Makers is a wonderful uplifting community founded in California by Geno Maurillo and Michael Blow. Find and follow the group on Facebook, and add these other artists to your playlist!
This means a lot, voted from a group of musical artists from all genres and walks of life, with the one common thread being a respect for animals and their freedom. Good company and very good music!
The Repressions recently traveled to Florida, stood in the ocean, ate amazing vegan food in four different cities, played a few songs at Dada in DelRey, and found this very fine street art in Wynwood, Miami.
Fear is a wild instinctual safeguard, protector and burden depending on the day… We are learning to be okay with it.
This Saturday night! Join The Repressions and such a fine lineup for a very good cause!

What can you do with the feeling when you know there is something you wanted but can never have? The deep, hard things, that seem unjust… a sense of loss for what cannot be… Can you bury or set free desire?
