Another tremendous Thank You to everyone who came out to this show at The Dolphin! Great audiences just feed the joy of what we do…
Art is completely unpredictable… and also requires a lot of careful planning and organization… So here have the next four invites now, we cannot wait to see you at these shows!
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!
This is a lovely way to connect with artists around the country, please enjoy this new offering of artists and a live acoustic performance of The Repressions song “Medicate Me.” Live premiere on Youtube Saturday January 4 at 1pm Eastern Standard Time.

Last year Nate and Barbara celebrated New Year’s Eve with merriment and music, and a video for their song Bright Lights. They decided to make this a tradition, and this year the lyrics are on screen. Bright Lights is a journey of love and change, reconciling our natural selves in the modern world, and leaping into your life even when you cannot see.
Happy New Year Friends. Thank you for being here.

The Repressions are always working on new songs, and want to use this showcase to share some new, some newer, some softer and dreamier songs such as Starpool, From The Blue Green Sea, Quiet Solitude and Starlight Golfcourse. The showcase is hosted by the talented Jimmy Artache and promises to feature other cool local artists. No cover charge, just wild and soft music right near the 30th Avenue Subway stop in glorious Astoria. Hope to see you there!
