New York Noise is a one-hour indie-rock music video television program which aired from 2003–2009 on NYCTV in New York and parts of New Jersey and Connecticut. It was created, produced, and edited by Shirley Braha [1][2] and funded by New York City under the Bloomberg administration. The show was "devoted to music videos, live footage, and high jinx from bands that ride the L train.".[3] According to the New York Times, it is "a groundbreaking show that has attracted a loyal following among musicians [4]" It is no longer in production since the station's rebranding in 2010,[5] despite a petition & campaign which attempted to save it.[6] The show's website is NYNOISE.TV

Notable bands & personalities that have hosted episodes include Animal Collective, Vampire Weekend, Fischerspooner, Beirut, The National, Au Revoir Simone, Aziz Ansari, Eugene Mirman & more.

Development[edit]

Shirley Braha, a New York native, first developed "New York Noise" in 2003 while working on her bachelor's degree at Smith College.[7] NYC TV General Manager Arick Wierson offered Braha a show in part because of her local cred and experience." [8] The show began airing in Fall of 2003, and by the end of 2004, after NYC TV acquired channel 25 and Braha had graduated, the episodes began featuring original segments[8]
