New Live Video ~ Whatever Happened to the Bookstore

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.

Upcoming Shows & A Video in Flannel

Save the evening dates! Next live in person shows Wednesday August 24th in Brooklyn, Friday September 2, and Sunday September 4th in Queens! More details to come very soon. Another Twitch Raid Train show will be Saturday August 20th at 8pm, and Tonight and Tuesday we’ll be playin on Twitch and what may happen? Something like this:

Doing a Twitch show is a unique performing experience. While the venue has more creature comforts, you tend to play much longer sets than at a music venue. You have to be ready for anything at either gig, but there is a tension and freedom taking random requests and improvising on a song you may have never played before. Nate did a fantastic job winging it with one of Barbara’s favorite Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, Dosed, on YouTube today.

Thank You Charlotte Bronte

Female authors have always struggled to be taken objectively, for this reason and others far more oppressive in the past they have used pen names, often male. Still today many use pen names or initials in the hopes of being judged fairly. It is a funny thing, since reading is one of the best things that we can do to learn critical thinking, compassion, empathy and imagination. Why should marketing and sexism detract from precious books and thought?

Here is to the excellent authors mentioned, and those that could not fit in the song, and to books themselves, our dearest friends, the books!

Please enjoy this song and video, and let us know who your favorite authors are!

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!
