Many weeks in quarantine and life disrupted and derailed have affected us all so deeply~ a new emotional wave persists: What is coming? What will the new after be? Do we wait for it, search for it, or create it? This song is called To The After.

This festival was sadly cancelled, but the show went on, with dozens of performers, speakers and cool cats contributing. The full parade can be found in three installments on Veggie Pride Parade NYC’s new Youtube channel. Here is the sing-along video from part 2 by The Repressions:
Episode 2 of Five Questions with The Repressions is on Youtube now! Sage is a wonderful artist and illustrator ~ hear her answers to our silly questions and see a few of her paintings at the end of the video.
Sage Cotignola is an artist that The Repressions greatly admire, who creates lush storytelling and emotionally evocative work in a signature style. The Repressions were so glad to attend her exhibition at Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn in February 2020 and get the chance for an interview. A few paintings are shown at the end of this video, but do visit her website for the full gallery~ it is a visual feast! Find and follow her!
Sage usually paints in gouache on watercolor paper or on wood. She revels in the over-the-top and the unusual. She’s inspired by mythology, folktales, Medieval painting, Japanese woodblock prints, and the more surprising aspects of everyday life.
Thanks to Zack Dash for filming!
This is a song about Old Man Willow from Lord of the Rings, perhaps the most frightening part of Fellowship of the Ring. Enjoy the song, and thank you for listening!
Astoria Music Collective is live streaming music every day from their facebook page… Wonderful artists live from their homes, a wonderful way to connect
!Join The Repressions tonight at 8 on the livestream at this link:
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!
