April Showers bring April Shows… Here are some photos from the The Repressions’ shows of April 2023:
Special thanks to Twitch Streamer Faustian Organ for joining us for the collab on April 1st, and to the Twitch community Jedi Friends Raid Train on April 23rd! Great times at Oliver’s, The Local and playing The Blasket for the first time. What a lovely month!
New YouTube video today! The Repressions perform their song “Down,” live, by request, from their live show on Twitch.
Down was the second song written by The Repressions, back in February of 2015. The song deals with giving in to things that comfort you when you are unwell. You can find the lyrics in the video description.
The first OG Songwriter’s Showcase went so well, the Repressions are going to do it again!

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
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!
The Repressions were honored to be part of V.O.I.C.E. 4 Change this fall, an Art as Activism group in NYC organized by author and activist Vigilante Vegan. Follow them for more performances from artists of all kinds who defend animals!
