Many thanks to everyone who joined the Halloween live stream shows on Youtube and Twitch! Knight Nate and Lady Barbara are very grateful that they can still dress up and play, and there is only more to come!
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!
Art is completely unpredictable… and also requires a lot of careful planning and organization… So here have the next four invites now, we cannot wait to see you at these shows!

Do our instincts work against our growth? Why do we act out in wildness while we further ourselves from the natural world?
Tonight on Youtube we have a lyric video for the song “What’s To Be Expected of the Wild,” performed unplugged at Repressions’ Castle.
