New Noise Magazine
Five years ago, a long-simmering idea came to fruition: a magazine, unbound by the shackles of genre, covering the best music from bands worth discovering and the art, industry, and scenes that surround it. Now, on the anniversary of that momentous day, New Noise is teaming up with the Ivy Room to kick off our monthly celebration of the underground.


We are proud to announce a special New Noise Night, taking place on the third Thursday of every month. It's time to translate our mission from the page to the stage, bringing intimate performances, challenging art, totally-not-douchey DJs, and all kinds of surprises to the East Bay.

Consider this your wild card show, the soft launch into your weekend. We’re putting together something special, and you are guaranteed to have a good time.

Our inaugural New Noise Night is actually three nights. Yes, plural! Why?! 'Cuz it worked out that way, shut up.

The first, Valentine’s Day, will feature Swiftumz, The Love-Birds, and Teenage Sex (the band, you pervs!).

Night two, Thursday 2/15, is a seeecret, but trust us... It’s worth marking your calendar for!

Finally, night three, Friday 2/16, will feature Samiam, SMOKERS, Sciatic Nerve, and Anti-Social.
Samiam
Samiam
Samiam was formed in late 1988 after the breakup of the Gilman club mainstay Isocracy. Their first show was in January 1989 with Christ on Parade. They released records through New Red Archives and Hopeless Records in the US and Burning Heart Records in Europe. In the mid-'90s, the band had two releases on major labels, Atlantic Records in 1994 and Ignition/Tommy Boy in 1997. This path achieved modest mainstream success; a video for "Capsized" gained a lot of airplay on MTV, they performed on The Jon Stewart Show in 1994 and the single "She Found You" garnered considerable radio play in 1998. The band toured extensively throughout Europe, North America, and Japan with Bad Religion, Green Day, The Toadies, Sense Field, blink-182, and Millencolin.
