We have returned! It wasn’t always the most comfortable of trips, and there’s a stench in our van that no amount of Febreeze seems to be able to get out, but The Noise FM and Archie Powell & The Exports survived the joint tour to the east coast. We played shows in Brooklyn, New Jersey, Ohio, D.C., Philadelphia and participated in New York’s esteemed CMJ Music Marathon Festival. Thanks so much to all of the new friends and bands we met on the road. Hopefully we’ll be seeing you all again very soon.
A personal highlight was kicking off our tour with a supporting slot for The Preatures. Thanks to everyone who came out to Double Door in Chicago to see us off. Be sure to check out the talented Carolina Mariana’s photos of the night RIGHT HERE.
With 7 dudes and enough equipment for both bands packed into one van, personal space was in short supply. On the morning of our departure for Columbus, Ohio, Austin sent a text message telling everyone to pack extremely light as there wasn’t room for unnecessary items. 2 hours into the trip we learned that Austin had packed 3 pairs of shoes and an Ab-Roller. Things were tense for a little while.
We played a fun show in Long Branch, New Jersey at a nifty little place called Brighton Bar. Thanks to the blog Speak Into My Good Eye for hosting us. Prior to the event we answered SIMGE’s survey titled “Get To Know The Noise FM” with a bunch of nonsense that is absolutely not helpful in getting to know The Noise FM. Check it out HERE.
