This festival was sadly cancelled, but the show went on, with dozens of performers, speakers and cool cats contributing. The full parade can be found in three installments on Veggie Pride Parade NYC’s new Youtube channel. Here is the sing-along video from part 2 by The Repressions:
The Repressions had the loveliest of times singing their original song Followcat, and from the Tiny Desk followed the Tiny Repressions… See their debut in this video. This song is dedicated to Luna!

Sometimes it is okay to wish to be hazy and dreamy, instead of sad. Our imaginations can take us to beautiful, perhaps healing places.
No we don’t stop actually. And we are so glad of it! The Repressions are playing The Mad Donkey: 32-07 36th Ave, Astoria, NY 11106 on Saturday November 16 as part of the Turning Leaves Festival!
