Allow – New live Video

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?

Allow- live acoustic performance at The Dolphin in Port Washington NY 1/31/20

Friday January 31st at The Dolphin 🐬! Music from the Forest, the City and the Sea…

This Friday is going to be very special… The Dolphin Bookshop has a magic that surrounds you before you realize it. The Repressions will  play in the stage/ seating/cafe area, with a beautiful bookshop to the right, more books and toys to the left, original art and color all around… It is not just “one” kind of place, and therefore inspiring and imperceptibly comfortable. No cover charge and all ages are welcome… The music begins at 7pm!

Folk Punk Show! 1/16

Folk-punk is a term that we hear often to describe the band, and we say that makes as much sense as all of the the genres we jump to. We’ll be playing with cool cats Sam Rasiotis and JW Farrell next week, who both bring the noise and passion, and so The Repressions will be dedicating this set to the faster, rambunctious songs. Jump with us!

Next Show- B Sides Thursday 11/21

The Repressions are always working on new songs, and want to use this showcase to share some new, some newer, some softer and dreamier songs such as Starpool, From The Blue Green Sea, Quiet Solitude and Starlight Golfcourse. The showcase is hosted by the talented Jimmy Artache and promises to feature other cool local artists. No cover charge, just wild and soft music right near the 30th Avenue Subway stop in glorious Astoria. Hope to see you there!
