This is the way 2016 ends. Not with a bang, but with buckets of toys and peppermint schnapps. – T.S. Eliot We’re proud to announce this year’s Noise For Toys benefit concerts in Chicago and Kansas City. Proceeds and unopened toys collected at the shows benefit Toys For Tots, an organization that helps families in need with gifts during the holiday season. Dust off your ugly holiday sweater and prepare yourself for a night of dancing, poorly-rehearsed Christmas songs, and one of our roommates dressed in a Santa costume that hasn’t been washed in the 8 years we’ve been hosting this. Yeah, that’s a crusty egg nog stain. Noise For Toys is our favorite show of the year, and we would love for you to join us for a fun-filled night of partying for a great cause!

We’ve been meaning to catch everyone up on where we’ve been, but we keep getting distracted from writing a blog post. You know what causes distractions? Bad posture. Duh. That’s right. Alex & Austin have appeared in a commercial for an orthopedic posture product that kind of resembles a giant black dildo. And while The Noise FM doesn’t explicitly endorse any products or companies, we can definitely say that the Posture PT works wonders (if only because we received a complimentary one as payment for appearing in their ad). We’ll give a rave review to any product we receive for free — that The Noise FM Guarantee™. We’ve strapped the Posture PT onto the driver’s seat of our tour van Topanga and I’ll be damned if we haven’t been driving with more confidence, energy and focus than ever before. — We recently played our first international shows as part of Canadian Music Week in Toronto. Austin and I grew up in Fort Scott, Kansas, where for some inexplicable reason we didn’t have MTV. We had MuchMusic, broadcast from Toronto. We’re small-town Kansas boys raised with a decidedly Canadian worldview. We’ve never seen an episode of MTV’s TRL, but we can talk for days about Our Lady Peace, I Mother Earth (and Edwin), Matthew Good Band, Moist, The Tea Party, Ed The Sock, Sook-Yin Lee, Rick the Temp, and The Moffatts’ legendary Snow Job ’99 performance. To say we were excited about playing in Canada would be an understatement. Thanks to everyone
