Jammers Waffle House is a different kind of indie rock. Specifically because they were they named purely because the band LOVES waffles. Matt, Carmen, Colin and Keegan are 4 very good people! I had a blast working with them and they even gave me some awesome merch!
Quick summary of the episode: The original line-up formed back in high school, The Beatles are loved hard by this group, A Pirates of the Caribbean boat would be the perfect boat, Matt is a lefty and very good at coming up with lyrics on the spot, I asked A LOT of food questions (I was very hungry), they are amazing at giving nicknames, Brown Eyed Girl is a no go for this band, their cult ideas are amazing, AND they opened for City and Colour!?!
The Mississauga music scene is wild and I think this group is a great representation of that. They’re always playing shows and hustling like no tomorrow to get their name out their. They have their whole heart and soul in their music and their band.
Upcoming shows: (ask them nicely and they’ll play Wonderwall)
They are ALWAYS playing shows (honestly just look at their facebook page!
I met Becca, the drummer of Baby Band and front person of Nice Going, a year or two ago online (aka Tinder I think) but we never actually met until this year when we were both getting tattooed (shoutout to outcast club) at the same time right across the isle from each other! We bonded over pain and astrology. They later agreed to join me for a very unspecific podcast episode and it happened and it was great!!
Quick summary of the (really great) episode: They like: bad/dad jokes, snacks and weed. They dislike: sushi (unless they’re in the very specific mood). They would start a cult where the day -to-day would include a lotta snacks and lots of weed. They’re learning to play the drums, and really like tacos. Also Nice Going might go on a tour (???) Also Becca and I discuss our nipple piercings and how we disappoint our mothers.
Two weeks ago Becca and they’re bandmates in Baby Band (who get there name because they’re all “babies” since they’re all learning a new instrument) played their first ever show and I had the privilege of being able to go see them rock the house down. I can say that they honestly killed it!
The band opened for another Toronto based-band Pax, who were releasing a cassette tape that night. (They also rocked it)
Make sure you support your friends and go to their shows! You’ll regret it if you don’t!
Becca is on the second episode of musicable! Listen to it here and learn so much about Becca and specifically here their song about clothes!
