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!
The Repressions are grateful to have played so many live shows in 2019, including the NYC Veggie Pride Parade in Union Square and Kingston Animalia Concert at BSP Kingston!

There is much more to come in the new year!

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.
What an incredible weekend…. nearly too much to report. Thank you to Rebecca Moore, Hudson Valley Vegfest and all of the incredible volunteers! If you were not able to go this year, start planning for the 2020 fest now!
The Repressions were already fans of Kiirstin Marilyn, Luis Mojica, Amelia Rose Allen, Kneel Cohn, Cyndi Washburn, Bobby Belfry, and Candle Hoax, and then got to share the stage with them last weekend, all in support of The Institute for Animal Happiness! Amazing!
Just one day away! This weekend long festival is going to be full of food and classes and art and music and ethical vendors and all to help animals! These are the songs The Repressions are excited to play:
Filmed live at Repressions Castle, this video is simple but very meaningful. The Repressions are honored to be performing this song during their set at Hudson Valley Vegfest Kingston Animalia concert this Saturday October 19 at BSP Kingston.
Thank you for watching!
This was a special show, with a very fun and appreciative audience. Uke Hut by day is NYC’s first and only ukulele shop, and then is transformed into a welcoming theatrical experience. There are featured performers and then a very energetic open mic to follow, hosted by the talented Andrew Swackhammer and Kristin Dausch. The Repressions featured on October 13th with Victoria Langford and Alexandra James. Truly a fine evening with an excellent audience!
