Oh how the evening did rawk! Thank you to host Jimmy Artache, Irish Whiskey Bar Astoria, JW Farrell and Sam Rasiotis!
Folk-punk is a term that we hear often to describe the band, and we say that makes as much sense as all of the the genres we jump to. We’ll be playing with cool cats Sam Rasiotis and JW Farrell next week, who both bring the noise and passion, and so The Repressions will be dedicating this set to the faster, rambunctious songs. Jump with us!
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! Thank you to these terrific New York venues and events: The Local, Espresso 77, East Village Social, Irish Whiskey Bar, Union Square Park, Make Music New York, Jack Jones, Dolphin Bookshop & Cafe, Belvedere, LIC Bar, Kumon Awards Ceremony, Athens Square Park, RaR Bar, Shore Fest, Uke Hut, BSP Kingston, The Way Station, The Quays, Shillelagh Tavern, The Mad Donkey, and Marine Terrace. Special thanks to photographer Patrick Merino (he took the fine professional images here,) John Cavaliere and Zack Dash for filming, photographing and always being there, Ben Olson, The AR Community and Astoria Music Collective, our neighborhood musical family! There is much more to come in the new year!
Music: Thank You Charlotte Bronte (Extended Intro) by The Repressions

Tell me more…
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!
