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!
The Repressions are playing a lively set of music, live from their castle to get you in the Halloween Spirit! Listen to live music and original songs while you get your wings and crowns and fangs and clever conspiracy theory costumes together for a weird Halloween. The Repressions will start streaming live on Youtube at 6pm and later on Twitch at 7pm~ Join us, and do like and subscribe and follow us. Booooooooo….
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!
7pm on facebook live! Live music ~ original songs~ please enjoy from the comfort of your own home.
Here is your formal invitation, in glorious sepia tones!
This Saturday night! Join The Repressions and such a fine lineup for a very good cause!

FEAT. PERFORMANCES BY:
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!
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!
