Join Our Ranks
So yes, we had an awesome show/set planned for you all at the Lizard Lounge, which was pre-sold out btw, thx to you awesome folks, and yes it was canceled due to snow. But know this.... our genuine, rock-ish music with sensitive/detailed lyrics will indeed rise again, even stronger...< VIEW ONLY THIS POST >
Excited that Time Out New York picked our CMJ Greenroom Showcase show for their 'six shows you must see' article. We'll be at the Rock Shop in Brooklyn next Friday Oct. 18th. Get ready college kids, we're bringing some serious, hardcore real-life, get yer sh*t together, earnest dream-pop music your way. And afterwards....we can explain to you how much we miss college.

That's right, The Grownup Noise is taking its neurotic east coast ass and heading West. Excited to return and play with great friends Blisses B and Goldenboy! And we get to play a cool show with the bass player of Cake! Other activities include: drinks w old friends, second guessing whether we made the right decision to stay on the east coast, enjoying quality mexican food - everywhere, looking totally out of place in LA, paul trying to sing in tune despite complete lack of sleep, stressing out then ultimately loving, etc...< VIEW ONLY THIS POST >
It was most definitely an honor to perform at the 'Kick-Ass Art Party' at the Oberon theater in Cambridge, a benefit show for 'The One Fund', with a 100% of the proceeds going to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. It feels so wonderful and just when we, as artists, can help society in a truly meaningful and direct way. And although art and music can be so subjective and abstract, it is essential to healing and evolving humanity. What a beautiful and important night!< VIEW ONLY THIS POST >
Neato! They used our tune 'the same the same' on the season premiere of the documentary tv show show 'World of Jenks'!
Also had a great Feb., breaking from recording to share the stage with Freedy Johnston and good friends 'Golden Bloom'!< VIEW ONLY THIS POST >
Happy New Chance! - It's true, we'll be deep underground in the next few months tracking a new record. In other words...trying, failing, overcoming, obsessing, doubting, doubling, affirming, loving, liking, hating, worrying, and transcending.< VIEW ONLY THIS POST >
We are excited indeed to hit the road this August with Golden Bloom and Timmy from IFC's 'whitest kids u know'!< VIEW ONLY THIS POST >
The sky is a calm, brick wall. None of the bricks are the same size, so whatever uniform denial a brick wall might normally espouse is not here. This undisciplined denial is almost inviting. With soft yellows and diluted greens and blues, the reflection of the bricks on the water is separated only by modest hills peppered with snow. You realize that the uneven ground you stand on is more trust worthy than any flat surface you've known. And you will not forget that sweet smell in your nose as you walk back to society. You will not forget that instant as you glanced towards the bottom of the jack pine to witness a wet branch wrapped in foliage slop to the ground, like a less glamorous shooting star. You will not forget how the sound of crackling branches can be elegant. And you will not forget how beautiful decay can be, if it is cradled and rocked gently in a certain light. But alas… you will forget. You have to forget.< VIEW ONLY THIS POST >
As some of you know, we weren't able to compete in the Boston Rock 'n' Roll Rumble this year due to a random ass back injury i (paul) sustained a few days prior to our show. Well... Anngelle Wood and the fantastic folks at the Rumble have asked us to be the Rumble's ceremonial guest band at the finals this Friday (4/20) at TT the Bears! So honored to make Rumble history: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WBCN_Rock_%26_Roll_Rumble< VIEW ONLY THIS POST >
