Astoria Music Collective not only puts on a show, but they bring the community out too! What an amazing evening playing in the cottage to all of Broadway and Astoria!
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 !
A fine night of indie music awaits! Earl Yellow, a queer-led indie alternative rock band based out of Brooklyn, NY, is taking the stage at C’mon Everybody, with their sweet, mellow and poignant original songs. Joining them is The Repressions, the forest-music/folk-punk duo from Queens, singing songs about art, injustice, and emotions as strength. Music and prizes and more~ do come through.

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.
