curating whatever’s left

Fully independent since 2015. Always.

NW Live 2022 Full Lineup & Statement

Since 2016, noisewhore has been organizing shows. For ourselves, for friends, for partners, for whoever in need of a show. We made shows for thousands of people, hundreds of people, from dive bars to high stages. One thing remains the same though, we are just a bunch of friends curating whatever’s left around us.

As such, after two years, we are bringing back noisewhore live, now rebranded to NW Live. In the past, you’ve seen the likes of Mitski, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and American Football graced NW Live. Now, we are starting things off with our closest friends. A bunch of them.

Two days, Two stages, 19 performers, all ages, all fun.

Introducing: The Store Front

The most equitable store around. Kickstarted by noisewhore. Owned by the independent artists.

The Store Front Manifesto

noisewhore created a fully independent music distribution platform based on three pillars: The 90% initiative, The Transparency Act and Own your Music.

The 90% Initiative

Support your favorite artists on a fully independent platform

We proudly present our ground initiative for this platform: The 90% Initiative. This means that the artists at the very least will own 90% of the revenue here over at our platform.

No intermediary, no anything, just us, people in the independent industry, boosting each other.

The Transparency Act

See where the money goes every month, full disclosure for everyone

Any initiative will instantly be lip service when it is not transparent. We strive to give you, the artists and the consumer, full disclosure of our operation.

What we do with our 10% cut, our expenditures and any other financial disclosure will be done through our monthly financial report.
