March 2023 was a grand time of performance and connection~ Here are some highlights:
OG Songwriter’s Showcase~ 3.19.23
The first OG Songwriter’s Showcase went so well, the Repressions are going to do it again!
Join The Repressions for the March 19th show at The Organic Grill, with talented artists Kiisrtin Marilyn and Rick Rocker!
Kiirstin Marilyn (she/her) is a singer-songwriter, actor and activist.
She has appeared on USA Network’s, Mr. Robot, Starz’ Hightown, and will soon be seen on season 2 of Peacock TV’s Dr. Death. Kiirstin is co-creator of the sketch comedy duo, Goddamn Vegan S.O.B.s, and her music can be found on all major streaming platforms. Follow her on Instagram and tiktok: @kiirstinmarilyn and @gdvegansobs
With an infusion of modern sonic sensibilities, New York City-bred recording artist, Rick Rocker manages to crack open the time capsule on all we know and love of rock and roll. “He writes songs that are near-instant anthems, made for shouting from rooftops, an arena or just your own bedrooms,” says Queens Tribune. Transparency & vulnerability are recurring pillars throughout Rocker’s previous releases including his acclaimed EP, “Love Turn” (2020.) You can find his music on all major streaming platforms and learn more at rickrockermusic.com. Follow him @rickrockermusic
Queens of Chaos Show~ 3.4.23
The Queens of Chaos show was a smash!
Thank you to Chaos Pixie for organizing the event, and playing that high energy music, along with cool and soulful artists Carissa Johnson and Step Neck! There were two extra crowds at the venue from earlier in the day that stayed for the show~ and The Repressions would like to think that their cover of the Pokemon theme song helped bring everyone together. It was a raucous night of inclusion, community and music!
