From Signal to Noise NJ:

Signal to Noise NJ is proud to present a WFDU fundraiser, featuring the bands Stuyvesant, Lyons and Joy Cleaner.

The show will take place at Pino’s Gift Basket Shoppe and Wine Cellar in Highland Park on Saturday, February 17 at 8:30 p.m. Admission is $10. Check back here for all ticket information.

All proceeds benefit WFDU FM, the long-running noncommercial radio station at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ, and home of the noisy rock and roll radio show Signal To Noise.

Stuyvesant consists of four lovely mild-mannered gents who bash away at their instruments like deranged dads. Stuyvesant have been around for 13 years, producing five records and seven kids. The Big Takeover said they were “A zillion times over more smarter and more sincere than the latest batch of ersatz flakes hogging the limelight,” while CMJ called them “unabashedly and refreshingly forward with its intention to lose all pretenses and just play good rock music. Stuyvesant just call it “dad rock.”

Lyons are an Asbury Park five-piece who recently released their self-titled debut EP on In The Clouds records. Our pal Jim of CoolDadMusic says “I’ve always loved their surfy, dream poppy, post-punk…it all adds up to a collection that picks, chooses and re-assembles influences that I’ve always loved into something I’ve had on repeat all morning.”

Based in Bloomfield, NJ, Joy Cleaner maintains a balance between jangly/breezy indiepop and rough/edgy indie rock, keeping the melodies and hooks up front. Look for their latest full-length, “Total Hell,” on Jigsaw Records.

Signal To Noise is a noisy rock and roll radio show that airs on 89.1 WFDU every Sunday night from 11pm til 1am, and focuses on loud independent music, with a heavy focus on NY and NJ-oriented bands and live shows. In the NYC area you can hear the show at 89.1 FM. Elsewhere, it streams live at WFDU.FM, or in archive form at www.mixcloud.com/sugarblast.

The WFDU Fundraiser is planned for Saturday, February 17 at Pino’s Gift Basket Shoppe and Wine Cellar, 13 North 4th Avenue, Highland Park. The show begins at 8:30 p.m.
